Five in five now. I don't care how many times he touches the ball if it goes in. Excellent attitude and the hard work by the midfield to create the chances for him has finally seen him turn into an asset. Long may it continue.

Hogan has definitely proved that if you continue to work hard, even if it isn't going your way, in time the results will come

It isn't a surprise though that if the team tries to play football the right way, strikers like hogan will thrive, I think this has a lot to do with grealish being fit and back in the team

He really worked hard yesterday, covered well for Grealish on a few occasions too.  Johnson still humped the ball up to him too often mind.

I'm not a Hogan fan. Far from it in fact. But one thing I will never moan about is his work rate and effort. That simply can not be faulted.

I remember saying in the early part of the season that Hogan would benefit from Grealish being in the side.

I also remember Bruce talking about Grealish being the key and it's proving so. Because he's playing well it's giving Hogan, and others, the opportunity to score and get into more dangerous positions.

Yep.  He used to frustrate me a lot, but having watched him quite closely in his recent extended run in the side, it is crystal clear what his strengths are.  If he is in the side and we don't play to those strengths then it is hardly his fault.

I still think he is a one  trick pony, he will score goals if you get the all to him in scoring positions.
Itís a good trick though.

He needs the ball to feet and played into the channels. Before Grealish returned, we had nobody who could do that. We were trying to change the way he played to suit us and alien to him. Now with a better player playing him in and creating the space for his runs, hes blossoming.

The other good thing for Hogan is delivery from out wide is so much better from both Snodgrass and Adomah, quicker, faster and less time for the defence to set.

That's because we're playing higher up the pitch.  2 months ago they were getting the ball 40-50 yards from goal and having to run 15 yards down the wing before cutting in and delivering a cross, that extra time carrying the ball meant all the space got closed up.  Now we're playing higher they're often taking 1-2 touches before crossing so the defence is still finding its shape and there are gaps for Hogan to exploit.

I really admire the fact that Hogan works and works and works, closing down, chasing lost causes, putting defences under pressure, and recently getting some well deserved goals to boot. But what I will never understand is the fact that every single time Johnson boots the ball upfield from a goal kick or a standard clearance, Hogan NEVER gets his head on it. He jumps as high as he can but as he's only a little fella what chance does he have. If you don't believe me, watch on Sunday. Never happens.

Grealish is key in two ways

He plays the passes through to hogan or the wingers (who then put it on a. Plate for him)

But just as importantly, grealish is key to us getting up the pitch. He moves into pockets and can deal with the ball in tight situations. This means that we donít need Hogan to play as a target man. Which he canít.

Scott nominated for Championship player of the month, along with Daniel Ayala, James Maddison and Ryan Sessegnon.

Agreed but makes it even more strange that several of his goals for us have been really good headers. Maybe its easier to get height etc when attacking the ball swung in rather than a huge punt down the middle that allows the brick shithouses (Is it just me but most Championship sides have 2 huge CB's) to pile straight through a CF?
