Southgate was handed the job in the wake of Sam Allardyce's departure and has led England to seven points from a possible nine in his three competitive games at the helm.

But Bowles said Petty didn't have much of a chance to surpass Fitzpatrick anyway. He knows more of the system. I don't help him almost as much as he helps me.
