Denis Odoi’s impressive displays since being asked to fill in at centre-back for Fulham have not gone unnoticed.
Tomas Kalas’ red card on Saturday saw Odoi thrown into the heart of the Whites’ back-line, alongside Tim Ream, and it was a role he was asked to perform again at Leeds.
You would not know it was not his natural position on the back of his two performances there.
Odoi has coped admirably with everything that’s been thrown at him, not that Ream expected anything else.
"He’s done well. He’s stepped in, obviously on Saturday against Reading and did ever so well," Ream said.
"He’s one of those guys who is aggressive on the ball, he’s got an engine that he can just go for days.
"His communication’s great and again, it doesn’t matter who I’m playing alongside or who is in the centre, it’s just a matter of communication and knowing what each other is going to do.
"Obviously he’s been around since last pre-season so we’re well aware of what he’s capable of.
"He’s stepped in, in a time of need and really taken the position."
