Fulham manager Roy Hodgson has backed in-form striker Bobby Zamora to break the 20-goal barrier this term.
The Cottagers hit-man took his total to 11 for the campaign after netting the only goal in Fulham's FA Cup third round win over Swindon on Saturday.
Hodgson believes the 28-year-old can now go on and break the 20-goal barrier for the first time since he scored 31 goals at Brighton in the 2000/1 campaign.
The Fulham boss said: "Eleven is good for Bobby and if we can get him onto 20 goals this year then that will be fantastic.
"The way that he is going at the moment, he's well on target for that.
"He was angry for not scoring the first chance which he set up for himself early on. The goal was a very fine strike and throughout the game I thought he did well."
Zamora only scored four times for the Cottagers last term and Hodgson praised the striker's determination to succeed at the club.
"His confidence must have been a little bit low in front of goal (last season), but he has never hidden," said Hodgson.
"The number of games he played even when the goals weren't going in or when he held the ball a bit too long, trying to find the right pass, he has never hidden.
"You have to have a lot of confidence in your own ability that when things aren't really going your way and people aren't singing your praises to keep launching yourself at the ball, to keep on demanding it, to keep going up for those challenges with the centre-backs and he's always done that."
Zamora's strike partner Andy Johnson came through 83 minutes of the match in his first start since October and Hodgson was delighted to have the England international back.
"AJ gives us the threat behind and, of course, what he needs is games and constant training with the team," said Hodgson.
"In fairness to him he has only done about a week, 10 days, of training with the team.
"At this time of year our training is spasmodic because of all the matches you play over the Christmas period, it is always after games, before games.
"There is never that week where you can do a proper couple of training sessions where you blast home your tactics."
