Bees boss pleased with Dallas progress

Northern Irishman has forced his way into Warburton's starting XI

Making strides: Brentford winger Stuart Dallas

Brentford boss Mark Warburton has piled praise on Stuart Dallas following his man of the match display against Crawley on Tuesday.

The Northern Irishman has had to bide his time since his switch from part-timers Crusaders two years ago.

However, the winger has forced his way into the reckoning following an impressive spell out on loan at Northampton Town and starred in the wins over Notts County and Crawley this week.

"Two years ago he was training once a week and playing part-time in Ireland," said Bees boss Mark Warburton.

Loan star: Dallas impressed during his time at Sixfields

"To adjust to living in London, training every day and all the demands that come with it, he's done tremendously well. He's come on leaps and bounds.

"Stuart didn't deserve to be rested after Saturday, he was really good. He deserved his shirt.

"He was defensively aware, tracked back and got forward well. I'm delighted for Stuart."
