Kieron Dyer was supposed to be bracing himself for the battle with Charlton Athletic at the weekend, but we all got a pleasant surprise on Wednesday.
Glenn Roeder: 'I took that decision when I watched him play in a friendly. I pulled him off after 60 minutes. The intention was he was going to play a full 90 minutes, but he was so outstanding in that game at the training ground, it occurred to me I ought to be putting him on the bench for the game.
'I thought it would give everyone a lift. He's got great respect in our dressing room and I thought by putting him on the bench not only would he give us a lift, he would give our supporters a lift.
'I didn't particularly have intentions of putting him on, but when he was called into action, we saw there how very quick he is, how rapid he is when he carries the ball and he was unlucky not to score on a couple of occasions.
'He's a very happy player tonight. I'm so pleased to see Kieron Dyer with a smile on his face again.'
