Does it only do it when the engine is warm?

Glow plugs? 

We get Poor starting from faulty glow plugs on diesels at work. 

Check to see if it's getting fuel, had fuel filters replaced and airs been in the system causing it to not start. 

When you put ignition can you hear the fuel pump kick in. 

(Possibly only kicks in when you open the door like my FR petrol)

New plugs hasn't cured the issue after about 15-20 mins of driving its starts to mess about you'll be driving along and it will start to lose power and won't rev you have to put your foot on the clutch and let it idle for about 10 seconds and it will be alright for a little while
