First team coach Chris Hughton continues his end of term reports and offers his personal assessment on the progress and performances of the players - next up, Fredi Kanoute.

COACH'S COMMENTS
I think Fredi's form certainly wasn't the same on his return from the African Nations. Before that he was an intergral part of the team - playing regularly, playing well and scoring goals.

Sometimes, certainly as a striker when that pattern is broken, it becomes difficult to slot straight back in. By that stage, others had played in his place and he found it hard to get his position back.

If I look at his contribution over the season in general though, it has been fabulous. For a while we have looked for a player with that presence up front and Fredi also has a physical side to his game.

He can score goals in the air and is another one who will benefit from this season in terms of being stronger for it next season.
