Is Neil Danns the catalyst behind Wanderers' improved away form?

Danns scores against Birmingham - Matthew Lewis

Guest writer Jonny Unsworth takes a look at the new guy in the side and his effect on results

The loan signing of Neil Danns, seen as a Leicester City reject, could well prove to be a shrewd piece of business from Dougie Freedman. Surely it has to be more than a coincidence that we now seem that much harder to beat since his arrival?

Since his signing we have picked up 7 out of 9 points on the road, with Danns scoring in the Birmingham victory - the new man slotting in well into the way we now want to play.

On Saturday against Bournemouth in particular, he drifted between the wider positions and most impressively in the second half offered the boost of energy to help support Jermaine Beckford on the break, providing another layer of depth to our formation.

Let's be honest, last season our away form was appalling for a team with promotion ambitions, and so once Dougie sorts out our home form, a player of Danns' qualities will without doubt keep us tighter and a lot more energetic.

With the resurgent form of Tim Ream and Matt Mills, not many teams will fancy their chances against a increasingly organised band of brothers.

Could a exceptional work ethic be more pivotal than flair and fancy boots come May 2014?
