The 22-year-old, originally signed from Halifax in the summer as an attacking midfielder, has settled into the two in midfield in the 4-2-3-1 formation.
And experienced enforcer Labadie is enjoying their partnership.
“I’ve been very impressed with Jack,” he said.
“The gaffer is deploying him in a new position, as a deep-lying midfielder.
“He’s excelled in that position. He’s getting us ticking and I’m enjoying playing with him. He’s a real good talent.
“I know he likes playing in the advanced positions and getting into scoring positions.
“But for the sake of the team, he’s dropped deeper and that’s the most beneficial thing for everyone at the moment.”
