Barnsley boss Mark Robins paid tribute to Iain Hume after the striker scored his first goal since returning from a serious head injury in an impressive 3-1 victory over West Brom.
Hume, who was sidelined for almost nine months with a fractured skull following a challenge by Sheffield United's Chris Morgan last November, scored the Tykes' second goal from the penalty spot shortly after the half hour as Roberto Di Matteo's promotion challengers were put to the sword.
"I'm delighted for Iain because it has been a long time coming," said the Barnsley boss. "As a striker you live off your goals and even though he has been working hard for the team and putting in good performances you need the goals for your self-confidence."
He added: "I've certainly got confidence in him, the supporters love him and he's working his socks off and deserved his goal.
"I didn't watch it but it was nice to hear the crowd react when it hit the back of the net."
