Neil has seen enough improvement from the talented youngster to predict a bright future.
"Lukas will become a number nine, you could see that with his movement," he said. "He needed to simplify his game, young players can often try to over-complicate it.
"What he has now become is an effective player, and he has shown that here. He has grown up a lot this year and I'm pleased with how he has developed on and off the pitch.
"There is no doubt in my mind that he will go on to be an excellent player."
