Starting in an unfamiliar position at left-back, he was a hard working and energetic stand-out throughout, especially in the second half when he started to influence our attacks, eventually bursting forward and setting up Forrest for his goal.

Fans were delighted to see him stake a claim for a more regular start, taking to Twitter to share their thoughts on his Sunday display…
