Despite giving away a penalty to set up a nervy finish, Kenlock was one of Town’s best players in the 2-1 win at Burton Albion on Good Friday, with Chambers keen to praise the youngster.

“He (Kenlock) deserves the credit and plaudits he is getting,” said Town’s captain.

“I think with the pressure possibly off now (Town are all but safe from relegation), we’re going to see him playing with a lot more freedom because I’ve seen what a good player he is in the last 18 months.

“He’s had to bide his time, and unfortunately for Jonas (Knudsen), he has hurt his shoulder and Myles has come in and not looked out of place.

“He gave a penalty away against Burton, and it’s something he didn’t have to do, but I’m not going to criticise him because he’s created the second goal and he had a good game.”

Chambers also praised striker Freddie Sears, who scored his third goal in as many games, against The Brewers.

“Freddie had to play out wide for most of the game (against Burton), but he’s always a threat on the break, especially against a high line,” said Chambers.

“He’s always going to get in behind teams with his constant running, his fitness levels are absolutely outstanding, and he’s given us that threat.

“He’s a very good finisher, even though he took his goal at the second attempt!

“Searsy has taken his chance (upfront) with both hands, and he never sulks wherever he has played - on the left, on the right, or through the middle.

“I thought the front three (Sears, David McGoldrick and Tom Lawrence were tremendous.

“We had an attacking threat and hopefully we can give the guys on the terraces something to shout about moving forward into next season.”
