With club captain Ronnie Henry missing much of the tail-end of the season due to an impending a hernia operation, the Liverpudlian assumed the responsibility he had at former club Fleetwood Town.

He even retained the captaincy when Henry returned for a one-off game towards the end of the season, but threw his weight behind Henry saying: “As far as I’m concerned Ronnie is the club captain. Nothing’s been discussed and I don’t expect anything to be discussed.”

On McNulty’s impact since joining, boss John Still added: “He has shown good leadership qualities in the absence of Ronnie Henry, his enthusiasm has been fantastic.”
