Try some Redex in your tank, as suggested above; make sure you get a good refill of fuel and follow the directions on the bottle. See how it goes after that.

When was your last service? Have you tried Injector Cleaner? Whenever I add injector cleaner (Redex) to my fuel, I can feel the difference. Maybe your fuel injectors are a bit clogged. I have the same engine as yourself in my Corsa. Is the engine still cold when you out your foot down? There are many things that could cause the lag in power.

It should help clear out your fuel system if there is anything in there causing mayhem.

It clears the fuel injectors. If the injectors are clogged, then you're not getting enough fuel through. I use Redex regularly, as Corsas usually only have 1 injector especially for a 1.2. If the one injector gets clogged, the car lags. You can buy Redex from Halfords, or you can get it cheaper at Wilkinsons ;)

personally, i'd go with the larger bottle and just pour a bit in everytime you fill up, tends to perform a lot better for the price of the larger bottle.
