Dudgeon has been City’s regular left wing-back in the opening weeks of the new season as part of Steve Bruce’s 3-5-2 system and has earned plenty of good reviews as a key member in the side’s good start to the season.
His run in the side has also helped to put the frustrations of last season behind him, when injury ruled the former Manchester United youngster out of the final weeks of the campaign, and he is enjoying being part of the current set-up, even if the wing-back role has been something new to get used to.
“I’m getting more comfortable in the position now,” said Dudgeon.
“It was tough at the start but as more games come and go, I’m getting used to it and hopefully I can do more for the team.
“In my head, I’ve always been a full back but having that license to be more attacking now is something I enjoy and it’s nice to be on the ball more to help the team attack.”
Dudgeon will once again be on duty when the Tigers face Leeds United at Elland Road on Tuesday night and after Saturday’s 4-1 win against Millwall, it’s a game he’s relishing.
“It will be a tough game and I’m sure they will be fired up after losing at the weekend,” added the 21-year-old.
“But we’ll be on a high as well and we want to keep the type of performance we put in on Saturday going.
“If we show that same type of ability it should be a good game.
“We’ve been unlucky away from home so far this season and we haven’t really done a lot wrong. Hopefully that will turn around this week and set us up nicely.”
