Leon Clarke isn't surprised to see David Brooks impressing in the Championship this season.

Speaking after the midweek success over Wolves, prior to Brooks earning his first senior international call-up with Wales, Clarke revealed what he thinks of the 20-year-old.

He commented: "I was impressed with Brooksy from the day I came in. He has had to be very patient in his progression.

"But he went away with England in the summer and did fantastically well. You could then see in pre-season his confidence was high and that what it's all about for him."

The experienced striker, who has four goals in two games added: "He is now believing in his ability, but sometimes he still needs that tough love on the training ground.

"He is a fantastic player and he can go as far as he wants if he applies himself really well and listens to the right advice, that could sometimes be criticism but it will help him."
