Nathan Ellington is looking to start troubling a few Premiership defences after using the Carling Cup to break his West Bromwich Albion duck.
Ellington's two goals, coupled with one for fellow £3 million signing Rob Earnshaw, added up to a good evening's work in the 4-1 beating of Bryan Robson's former club, Bradford City, on Tuesday night.
It was the first time Ellington and Earnshaw had been paired in attack - unsurprising, given Geoff Horsfield's early-season form - but for the duo to have scored three of the four goals between them hints at a productive future partnership.
Ellington is certainly confident that he can match Earnshaw's feat of managing double figures in his first Premiership season, having also stepped up from the league below. He is equally convinced that there is more to come from the Welshman.
Albion's two exciting young E-types have not only promise but age on their side in their attempt to become the settled, consistent strikeforce Robson is searching for. But it also did not go unnoticed that two of Tuesday night's combined three-goal tally were set up following Kanu's early second-half arrival.
The Nigerian was one of those whose Hawthorns future seemed at risk in early August when Ellington's signing meant there were five strikers at the club. But Albion's newest forward insists that there is still a role for Kanu, especially playing in what seems his most dangerous role just behind the front two.
"It is great to feed off a player like that who has won European Cups and things," said Ellington. "He has got all the experience.
"When he came on in the second half, you could see that extra bit of class he possesses.
"Having players like that in the squad is always going to be good. He knows when to play the ball and when to hold it. If you make good runs, he will find you.
"You just try to do the same sort of thing yourself. You work on it in training and it can only be good for all the players, learning off someone like him.
"He gives you more ideas regarding what you can do in a game. Playing with better players, you see them do certain things and you think 'I didn't realise that could be done'.
"The way that people control the ball is a step up from the lower leagues to the Premiership that you're having to learn. You have to adjust and I'm trying to do that."
Ellington was pleased, not only to bag his first Albion goals, but also to get 90 minutes of action under his belt for the first time since early April.
"I am still a bit rusty, but I will get there," he said. "It was good to get back on the score-sheet again after a bit of time out on the side-lines.
"My pre-season was a bit stop-start and it's good to get back playing and get a full 90 minutes in. It's been a while since I actually played a full game of competitive football.
"It was a bit scrappy at the start, but my goal helped us settle down a bit and made me feel a bit better. I've never thought about the £3 million price tag.
"All I've thought about is that the gaffer has brought me in to score goals. I just do my job and play how I play and the goals will keep coming."
