Derby County attacker Simon Dawkins looked like a different player in a 4-0 win over Blackpool.
The 27-year-old was deployed in a central attacking role against the hapless Tangerines, and looked lively throughout.
Dawkins also recorded more accurate passes than any Championship player in Tuesday night's round of matches.
He managed 95 touches of the ball and recorded a 92 per cent pass completion rate, an impressive figure for a player linking play in the opposition third.
Dawkins created two chances during the game and registered two shots on target, also making two interceptions.
It was his first game in the centre this season, having been used on the wings by Steve McClaren, with 14 Championship starts to his name and 18 appearances from the bench. He has two goals and two assists to his name this season.
Signed from Tottenham Hotspur in 2013 after a loan spell at Aston Villa, Dawkins has not yet been able to cement himself as a regular in the starting line-up.
It must be remembered that the opposition were woeful, with already relegated Blackpool clearly not performing at Championship level at present, but Dawkins' display certainly offered intrigue and encouragement.
Here is a look at how fans reacted on Twitter to his performance...
Despite poor opposition, professional job by #dcfc tonight. That back 4 stays unchanged IMO & Dawkins must play centrally again.— Ian Redfern (@redfern_ian) April 14, 2015
Really liked Dawkins in the CM/CAM role tonight, got the ball moving forward and can go past a man when needed, also Bryson did well #dcfc— Horney™ (@BradHorne_) April 14, 2015
