"He is an extremely talented individual," he added.
"I see on the training ground over the last few weeks more of an understanding of what is required in this league. Even in training when Paul Robinson is kicking lumps out of you, you have to understand that it's a case of 'here you are and hello'.

"I think you have a fair chance of seeing more of him over the next few weeks, not because of our predicament but because, in my opinion, he is becoming accustomed to feeling the contact and getting on with it, skipping over them, jumping and then going back for more.
"He is showing his talent that is obviously there."
