Robert Hall was once again on the scoresheet and Hendon hopes he and the others involved with the first team will continue to improve as they become a regular part of Sam Allardyce's plans.
He told whufc.com: "It was an unbelievable header from arguably the smallest player on the pitch. He has had three big games recently [against Arsenal, Norwich and in the Capital One Cup against Wigan Athletic] and he did look a little tired at the end and rightly so.
"He gives everything when he plays and was rewarded with yet another goal. It is a credit to him along with Dan Potts and Jordan Spence that they have all played for the first team last week."
