Gareth Southgate: “I think we saw signs at Scunthorpe of how well Lita and Emnes can play well together.

“The more they play together the more they can be effective as a team.

“Both of them are capable of scoring goals in the Championship and so it’s a big challenge for them.

“But it’s not just about scoring goals. Their work ethic at Scunthorpe in closing people down was excellent and made a big difference to the outcome.

“There is a lot about Lita’s game and we saw flashes of that at Scunthorpe.

“We can see his sharpness and how he holds up the ball.

“He had two good efforts and was only denied his first goal by a brilliant save by their keeper.

“There was a bit of doubt over whether Emnes would play at Scunthorpe because of a knock, but he did and he was outstanding.

“He’s a very fit boy. He will have gained confidence from his goal at Swansea and will improve all the time.”
