The winger played 45 minutes for the Under-23s in yesterday’s 2-0 win over Rotherham United.

Fernandez missed almost a year of football with heel and hip injuries.

The 21-year-old said: “I haven't played for nearly a year now.

“That feels great, because last year was terrible for me as I wasn't able to play any games. It was a great feeling to be back on the pitch.”
