“We know that Dennis has got that explosive burst,” Cleverly told the club’s official website.

“As a defender you can think you’re comfortable on the ball, and then he appears from nowhere.

“We said to the players we thought we would create chances through high regains. We didn’t win as many as I’d like but the one that mattered went in.

“He’s been nursing a small groin issue, so it was always in my mind that he wasn’t going to complete the game.

“He’s done well to get to an hour and score the winning goal.”
