Martin Jol was pleased to see Sean Davis so impressively get through an extended run out at Birmingham City.
The midfielder - who missed four months of action after knee surgery in November - replaced injured Reto Ziegler in the first half at St Andrews.
He quickly formed an understanding with Michael Carrick in central midfield with Michael Brown moving to the right as we dominated the second half. He also played a key role in Stephen Kelly's goal as we drew 1-1.
Head Coach Martin said: "When you know Pedro Mendes is out with a broken toe it's always good to have a very good midfielder back like Sean Davis.
"He's not fully match fit yet but I thought he did very well at Birmingham.
"We had to switch things around, Browny played centrally, wide and right-back but I don't think that affected us too much.
"We wanted to win but we gave an easy goal away. We had the chances and it's a bit frustrating, especially as we're scoring goals at home."
