David Jones' search for a proven goalscorer may be continuing in earnest, but the Cardiff City manager knows in Jason Koumas, he has a ready-made match-winner.
With teenager Cameron Jerome and Republic of Ireland front-man Alan Lee his only fit options, Jones has upped his quest to bring in some more attacking bite to Ninian Park, and has been linked with a move for Portsmouth striker Svetoslav Todorov.
However, heading into tonight's home clash with Watford, the Bluebirds are likely to remain unchanged from the side which came from behind to beat Leeds in midweek.
And that means Wales midfielder Koumas, who came off the bench to rifle in a leveller before Darren Purse netted a winner from the spot, will again be among the substitutes following the 25-year-old's loan move from West Bromwich Albion.
"Jason still has a long way to go to get fully fit," said Jones, the former Wolves boss. "He has, though, done everything asked of him since being at this club - he wanted to play and he has shown us what he can do."
Cardiff lost their opening Championship match 1-0 at Ipswich, and despite again going behind against Leeds, they showed battling spirit to turn things around.
Jones believes the added lift of a vocal Welsh support helped his team secure their first three points of the new season.
"They kept going and that helped a lot. We need them to be like that all the time," he said.
Jones still has some injury concerns, however, with midfielders Joe Ledley and Richard Langley sidelined by ankle problems, while striker Andy Campbell is suffering from a rib injury.
Meanwhile, former Albion midfielder Artim Sakiri will not be joining Burnley after his appeal for a work permit was rejected by the Home Office.
The 31-year-old Macedonia international had agreed a one-year deal with the Clarets, but a hearing in Sheffield turned down his application.
Sakiri came to prominence when he scored direct from a corner against England in 2-2 draw in a European Championship qualifier at St Mary's in 2002.
He was signed by Gary Megson at Albion in the following year, but struggled to establish himself under new Baggies boss Bryan Robson, who released him at the end of last season.
