Dean Smith believes Yannick Bolasie is getting “better and better” – and is back to the “bag of tricks” that made him one of the best wingers in the country.
Bolasie joined from Everton on loan in the summer and is still battling to get back to absolute full fitness.
Smith didn’t see enough out of him in the win against Swansea and left him out at Norwich.
He looked a bag full of tricks. That’s what I remember of him.
Smith on Bolasie
But he came flying back at QPR and really impressed in his cameo against Bolton.
Smith believes he has a real asset on his hands as he looks to push up into the higher levels of the Championship table.
He said: “I am really pleased with how he’s responded. I thought he was a real threat when he came on against Bolton.
“He looked powerful. He looked quick. He looked strong. He looked a bag full of tricks. That’s what I remember of him.
“I thought he did that when he came off the bench against QPR, too. It’s pleasing we have someone of that quality who’s getting better and better.”
