A nice come back for 3 points, but who stood out?

Clive Brunskill

It wasn't the prettiest game but winning after being down is always beautiful to watch. The header from Emmerson Boyce was picture perfect, and it was great to see him back. It was good to see Grant Holt get a goal, though I suppose it could be argued it was an own goal. Hopefully Holt will return to full fitness soon and start putting them away left, right and centre. Jordi Gomez played well again, he seems to be taking full advantage of these first team opportunities, I wouldn't be surprised if he was one of the first few names on the sheet at the moment. Jean Beausejour was terrific this game alongside James McArthur. Leon Barnett also stood out in defence.

However, his week's Man of the Match award goes to Nick Powell. I've been very impressed by the lad so far, he's played well in all the matches he's played. It looks like he will be a valuable member of the squad this season and I can't wait to see what kind of player he becomes in the future.
