The boy is fast looking a sensation. Having shone at centre back, the summer signing showed that he can also star as a marauding right-back too, notching a pair of assists and rarely putting a foot wrong.
Another impressive outing from the Northern Ireland international, who withstood the bulky prowess of Kevin Davies in almost total comfort.
A serene return to action for the veteran defender, who came back from a two-match absence to lend invaluable experience to the Reds' backline.
Withstood a poor challenge from Davies early on and dominated his battle with ex-Red Chris Eagles, bombing forward repeatedly to help out in attack.
Teased and tormented Paul Robinson all afternoon, putting in an unplayable cross for Chicharito's opener and playing a part in four of the Reds' five goals.
A nightmare for the youngster, who was given just five minutes before a poor tackle from Kevin Davies curtailed his afternoon and his start to the season.
