    I thought that there were several noteworthy performances, Johnson, Davies, Keogh, and Jerome, but for me it was great to see Forsyth back to something like his best. I think being one of three central defenders suits his strengths and he is becoming more confident with each game

    Huddlestone. Should have been a difficult decision with today's performance, although Barnsley were very poor.

    There were great performances all round, but Huddlestone stood out by being almost un-noticeable. There was no reliance on majestic long balls, just doing his job simply, stepping in when needed and linking the rest of the team together.

    Excellent performance - so assured, in fact almost imperious.

    This back three formation has also suited Keogh - he is a different player with this formation, as if the pressure has been taken off him. He is a much more all-round player than we probably could ever have thought - we saw glimpses of it with his forward runs, but he has much more freedom now. That cracker of a shot which hit the bar was a case in point. And he seems to be defending better as well - that block in the first half was amazing. Well done Richard, and well done Gary for actually changing formation.

    Jerome continues to do exactly what he was bought for.

    Davies was his usual excellent self.

    I thought Johnson had one of his best games for quite a while.

    In the interests of balance, Keogh played a wonderful through pass to Vydra in the second half.

    I'm going to re-watch the full 90 before voting - at the ground, I'd probably go for Davies, closely followed by Johnson.

    Huddlestone for me. Davies inspired confidence, Johnson put himself about to good effect, but Big Tom's class stood out. I think he finds it a bit easy at this level. His vision and range of passing is there for all to see.

    Ever since Davies has taken the armband it has had two dramatic effects, the first he has lead from the front inspiring those those around him and second it has taken pressure off Keogh who is able to improve his on the field showing with confidence that Curtis will cover for those forward runs.

    My vote goes to Curtis Davies for his confident captaincy and form that is inspiring others.

    Bradley Johnson for me. He put himself about to far better effect than normal, but for the first time ever, his passing was sublime. That ball for Jerome's goal was the best pass by a Derby player this season.

    I also thought that Jerome was brilliant and every one of our players was worth a minimum 7/10.
