When Andy Rose signed with League One side Coventry City in January he seemed to be joining a team destined to move into the Championship. The Sky Blues were second in League One and had the best goal-difference at midseason.

But things have not gone quite as planned. Although Rose has found regular playing time -- logging nearly 500 minutes in nine appearances -- Coventry City has fallen to 11th place and at one point had won just two two of 10 matches.

The Wintonian was simply irrepressible and – to Burnley supporters' joy – managed to return from the sidelines just as his strike partner Sam Vokes had hobbled off with a season-ending injury. Trippier, who once again claimed the right-back spot in the divisional PFA team of the year, can however be considered unlucky not to have made the award his own; a great career surely lies ahead for the former Manchester City youth-teamer.
