Wolves manager Mick McCarthy believes Kevin Doyle can provide the spark to keep them in the Premier League.
Doyle moved to Molineux for a club record fee of £6.5million during the summer and McCarthy is pinning his hopes on the Republic of Ireland international.
After a solid start to the top-flight campaign, the Wolves manager thinks Doyle could provide the flash of quality that is needed to win games against tough opposition.
"I think Kevin can be really first-class in the Premier League, I really do, I have been delighted with him," he said.
"Firstly, his work-rate and endeavour is as good as anyone else but he adds to that with his great touch.
"Going on against Manchester United in midweek, he made a difference to us with his movement and pace.
"Against United I just don't think we had that extra little 10 per cent whatever it might be, devilment, belief, arrogance, cheekiness, twinkle in the eye, whatever it might be to win that game."
McCarthy hopes Doyle can provide that twinkle in the eye, and is glad the new signing has formed an understanding with strike partner Andy Keogh.
"If they play the way that they are then they can develop into a really good partnership. But scoring goals will be the real test of it.
"Partnerships develop over time and those two have got the shirts at the moment."
