Midfielder Tim bagged both goals in the reserves' 2-2 draw against West Ham in Tuesday's FA Premier Reserve League encounter at Stevenage Borough.
This season has been a bit of a non-starter for the ex-England international thanks to a thigh and ankle problems and, to add insult to injury, he was sent off in his comeback game at Tranmere Rovers last week.
But his attitude in reserve games has been first class and boss Colin insisted: "He looked as sharp as you would hope for against West Ham and he's done everything so far fantastically well for me.
"He has the bonus of scoring the two goals which probably won't matter too much to him but the metres and yards he covered on the pitch is what we're looking for and his influence when he has the ball.
"It's a fantastic example for everyone else. Just look at 10 minutes before the end when he runs 60 yards back for a tackle on the edge of our box.
"That typifies how he's gone about his work in the last four or five weeks. It's been a really stop-start season for him since pre-season but he doesn't need me or anyone else to tell him that he feels a lot better and he's up to match tempo."
Colin Calderwood has described Tim Sherwood's performances for his reserve outfit as 'an example' to his young protages.
