There's been a pretty memorable snatch of match commentary doing the rounds via e-mail in the West Midlands since Jay Bothroyd made such a name for himself in last month's Black Country derby.
Prior to his late match-winning goal against West Bromwich Albion, Bothroyd had not scored for Wolves in five months.
So it was perhaps understandable when, introduced into the action at Molineux with 23 minutes to go, his arrival was not viewed with much cause for Wolves optimism by one local radio reporter.
"Bothroyd's coming on," boomed the voice, "and that's great news for the Albion, as he's rubbish."
"Don't say that," pleaded the Albion-supporting match summariser alongside him, "he'll probably go and get the winning goal now!"
Sure enough, he did.
Five weeks on, Bothroyd is now champing at the bit for another Midland derby experience against Birmingham City at Molineux this Sunday. And, although he can't rely on another radio reporter so gloriously tempting fate for him again, it's a fair bet that no Blues fan regards him as "rubbish" now.
On top of that match-winner against the Albion, Bothroyd has now hit four goals in as many games to take over as Wolves' top scorer.
Having been kept waiting by manager Mick McCarthy, and having to endure another four games on the bench before being allowed to start, Bothroyd has responded in the right manner.
His match-winning double against Hull City on Easter Monday was followed by another brace in last Saturday's 2-2 draw with Crystal Palace, the team with whom he did his pre-season training prior to getting the call from McCarthy to come to Molineux . And the only downside was the 'dead leg' that forced him off after an hour at Selhurst Park.
After reporting for treatment on his day-off on Monday, Bothroyd is confident of being fit for Sunday's derby against Birmingham. And he cannot wait to get back into action, especially against a Blues side containing his old Coventry City team-mate Gary McSheffrey.
"Every time I play, I'm getting fitter and I'm really looking forward to this game against Birmingham," said Bothroyd. "Derby games are always big games and the last one was really good.
"It was a great team performance. And, obviously, I'll never forget my part in it and the goal I scored."
While Bothroyd is looking to keep up his late season scoring run over the final three games to cement Wolves' place in the play-offs, he knows he could be in the process of keeping the season alive for one of his team-mates.
Rob Edwards is two weeks into his recovery from a medial knee ligament injury suffered in training in the week following the 6-0 home defeat to Southampton. But with the possibility of this season's campaign running all the way to Wembley on Whit Monday, Edwards is keeping his fingers crossed that he might still be involved.
"Hopefully I'll be back," he said. "The play-off final is on May 28 and, if we get there, I would definitely like to be involved by then."
It would also spare the Wales international defender the anxiety of having to watch.
"I was OK against Hull," he said, "because it was fairly comfortable. But I was a bit more edgy on Saturday, because I knew what was going on everywhere else, especially when Cardiff got that late goal against Stoke."
