Potter - James 'above Championship level'
Daniel James' dazzling display in Swansea City's 3-1 win over Stoke was "above Championship level", according to manager Graham Potter.
The 21-year-old scored a brilliant first-half goal and was fouled several times - three of which led to cards that resulted in Stoke finishing the match with only nine men on the pitch.
Stoke left-back Bruno Martins Indi was issued with a straight red card for scything down James as he bore down on goal and, a few minutes later Tom Edwards received his marching orders for his second card-worthy foul of the match on the winger.
The Swansea star has been in supreme form in the second half of the season, but Potter felt his display on Tuesday was arguably his best showing yet.
"If you look at the performance, if you are being honest it's above Championship level," Potter said.
"That was as good an individual performance as I have ever witnessed when you consider Stoke are a good team with good players who are well organised and do not concede many goals.
"I have run out of superlatives to be honest. It was his fourth game in 11 days. His ability to run, his desire to run, his courage and then his quality - we are just lucky to witness it."
