Everton manager David Moyes has backed Andy Johnson to rediscover his goalscroing touch.
Johnson found the back of the net 12 times for the Toffees last season, but he goes into Thursday's Uefa Cup meeting with Metalist Kharkiv searching for his first goal of the present campaign.
However, Moyes believes his star striker will soon be back among the goals following the arrival of Yakubu Aiyegbeni at Goodison Park.
Moyes believes Yakubu - who joined Everton from Middlesbrough in August - and Johnson are set to form a formidable strike partnership, rather than be hindered by each other's presence.
"I still think Andy will get his quota," Moyes told the Liverpool Echo. "Having Yakubu up there with him shouldn't make any difference.
"I'm pleased with how they're both playing at the moment. We have been happy with the way Yak has started.
"We are trying to get him used to us, but parts of his game already have been very good and when we have got service to him he has shown his quality.
"And Andy is working as hard as he always does. We don't really mind who scores the goals as long as we get some on Thursday."
