Teenager Louis Reed was one of the star performers of Tuesday night's victory over Yeovil Town.
His display, which included playing a part in both of United's goal, drew praise from a number of interested parties, including boss Nigel Clough.
The 17-year-old was recalled to the starting line-up to make his eighth appearance of the campaign and he is delighted with his progress.
"I hope it continues," said Louis. "I didn't know what this season would bring but I've been with the first team since pre-season and I'm loving it.
"It is great that that Gaffer trusts me in games like Tuesday night and I'm delighted that I can contribute.
"It was a good game, we started well and after a slow 10-15 minutes in the second half we had another go, it was a comfortable victory in the end.
"I thought I had scored my first goal with the shot in the first half but the goalkeeper saved it and Marc McNulty followed up to score and then in the second I saw Jamie Murphy come in off the touchline so I put the ball in front of him, he did the rest."
"Yeovil had a couple of decent players, they threatened us on the counter-attack and playing in midfield we have to support the back lads as well as the strikers so it was also pleasing that we managed to keep a clean sheet."
