Just think let him have a run of games. I remember not so long ago DCL "wasn't good enough"...
...I know you can't always just compare players like that, but honestly, plenty of people on here would've happily sold DCL a short time after he came into the team. We were forced to keep playing him and he made the breakthrough and now look at him, we complain he's injured and we don't have cover!
I could be wrong, but I think he lacks attacking ideas and guile.
His work rate is excellent and he frequently got a block in on their full back last night which was great to see, but from what I've seen so far, he's just a bit Kevin Kilbane in that he's rather one dimensional in his attacking play.
Maybe more confidence and playing in a consistently winning team will unlock his box of tricks (if he has one) and we'll see more attacking flair from him, but I'm not convinced on that front.
