While Danny Batth was exiled before he could make a return to the Premier League with Wolves, it seems he still has the place firmly in his heart.

Now playing for Stoke City who are wallowing towards the bottom of the Championship, he put in a top performance yesterday as they overcame former rival West Brom.

As referenced by Tim Spiers on Twitter after the match, the 29-year-old defender was asked by Sky whether that win was extra special bearing in mind his connections to Wolves, to which he responded, “yeah it was”.

Could Danny Batth still do a job here?

We could do with him

We could do with him

We're better than that now

We're better than that now

The defender was also given the man of the match award for his impressive performance, which unsurprisingly, delighted plenty of the home supporters.

Lots of fans got in response to Spiers’ tweet to share their love for the big centre half. Here are some of their responses below…

So far this season, the defender has featured 25 times in the Championship for his club, with an average rating, according to WhoScored’s algorithm, of 6.92 – the third highest in the squad.

Unsurprisingly, the man who has 212 appearances for Wolves has been a colossus at the back in the air, and has recorded 5.2 aerials won per game.

With that win, Stoke are 21st in the league, four clear of Barnsley in 22nd.
