||Ashley Barnes -
Three goals in three games at the end of the

absolute stunner against Bournemouth. Making life

Much improved performances following the trials
and tribulations of earlier in the season although
he was probably helped by the fact he isn't play in
central midfield anymore. Part of an impressive
month for the defence.

keep that unlikely clean sheet at Blackburn and
imperious away at Wigan as well.

game at Doncaster in the first away win since
August. Not as an attacking full back as we may now
be used to but defensively as good as they come.
