The midfielder started his sixth Championship game out of seven on Wednesday night, the 3-2 defeat against Fulham at Craven Cottage, setting up Dan Potts for his first goal of the season, delivering an inch-perfect free kick for the full back to glance into the net.

Brown, who was in his more advanced role once more, went on to set up a host of chances for James Collins, with stats showing he created eight opportunities in total, the highest in the division during the midweek round of fixtures.

Speaking afterwards, Jones said: "I'm delighted he wasn’t injured, he got a really bad challenge against him, so hopefully he’s okay, but Izzy in that position, it suits him.

"He’s effective, we mixed it up a little bit with him and James first half, but his contribution, off the ball as well now, I think he’s benefited from playing in a midfield three because he had to take that responsibility on board.

"Now as a number 10 it’s a bit easier, but he's never let the side down once off the ball.

"On the ball Izzy Brown's a Premier League player, so we're delighted to have him and in the form that he's in."
