Pieters has partnered Cedric Kipre for the past three games in the heart of defence and has kept clean sheets against Cardiff City and Plymouth Argyle respectively in the process.

The veteran defender, who made 225 Premier League appearances for Stoke City and Burnley combined, has faced an emotional battle off the pitch too.
