Hard work beats talent when talent doesn’t work hard. Tariqe Fosu’s performance against Sunderland on Tuesday night had both – which is why he is your Mattress Online Man of the Match.
The Brentford loanee was deployed in a midfield three for the clash against the Black Cats and starred alongside his teammates as Matt Taylor’s men worked incredibly hard for three precious home points.
It was another game in which naming a four-man shortlist was tough, such was the strength in depth of the candidates, but Fosu really shone.
Dancing feet coupled with tireless running and a willingness to get stuck in embodied all of the attributes Taylor had been looking for from his team in recent weeks.
Built on the foundations of hard work, but with a sprinkling of star quality.
Fosu was pitted against scorer of the opening goal Ollie Rathbone, the dependable Lee Peltier and the rocksteady Cameron Humphreys in the four-man poll and emerged as victor with 38.8% of the 1,163 votes cast.
