Former West Ham United academy graduate Mpanzu has just enjoyed his longest sequence of matches after an injury-disrupted couple of years.
The direct, pacey youngster was an instant hit when signed on-loan by then-boss John Still from the Hammers midway through the Conference title winning campaign of 2013-14, scoring a memorable goal in a crucial come-from-behind win at Dartford.

Netted his first goal of this season in the 4-0 win at Yeovil in early March, and followed it up with the winner against Notts County in April to leave his Town career stats at seven goals from 117 appearances by the end of the campaign.
