The 19-year-old returned to the club on Monday after a two-month spell at Albion and was straight back into action with the reserves in the 2-1 win over Leicester at Stevenage.
"At Brighton they played him in midfield which was a little bit surprising for me," said David of the Republic of Ireland youth international. "In his first game at Notts County I got an absolutely glowing report and he has done well since.
"We've used him as a second striker and he has got vision, good ability at close quarters, courage and that impish spirit. He seeks out the ball and wants to play - I think he'll do well."
Meanwhile, David now hopes that Dean Marney enjoys a similarly productive loan spell at QPR after heading to Loftus Road last weekend.
"Dean has been up and down, but if he can put a consistant run together he could be one for the future."
