The on-loan West Ham United midfielder struck both goals.
Bond said: "No-one doubts his talents and what he can give to a team. It would appear that he has had other issues which have prevented him from showing what he is capable of.
"He has only been with us a short time, but against Birmingham he has shown what a good player he is at the present time. Certainly he is one of the most talented individuals in the Championship and I think he would be a credit to any league if he can apply himself."
