STAGS defender John Mullins has been described as 'the most improved player in the league' by boss Billy Dearden.
Mullins is one defender exempt from recent criticisms as he has played almost faultlessly at right back or centre half.
"John had to fight his way into the team but since then he has he has gone from strength to strength," said Dearden.
"I think John is the most improved player in the league at right back and I have nothing but praise for him.
"He has never looked out of place and it is a great credit to him. He is comfortable in both positions."
