Kevin Keen praised West Brom's Peter Odemwingie and is confident the striker will be in Steve Clarke's plans for Saturday's clash with QPR.
Odemwingie, who was last season's top scorer, has completed a three-match ban after seeing red at Fulham almost three weeks ago.
And the club's joint assistant head coach believes the Nigeria international is ready to make amends for the sending-off this weekend.
"I think since I've come in and met Peter I can tell he is a really good guy," Keen told the club's official website.
"He is great around the place, speaks goodness knows how many languages, and is good with the lads. I think he is always quite humble and a nice bloke and I find him an intelligent, good man.
"I would say his training over the last two weeks is as good as it's been. He's got a fantastic quality, whether it's passing and moving, or his finishing.
"His qualities are really, really top draw. I've been so impressed by him in general - and certainly over the last two weeks.
"He's chomping at the bit to get back into the team and perhaps to make up for his sending-off, and give the lads back a little bit after feeling that he maybe let them down at Fulham.
"Again, his training has been fantastic over the last two weeks and he will certainly be in Steve's thoughts for Saturday.
"He's a great player, whether starting or coming off the bench. He's got some real quality and a goal in him every time he goes on the pitch."
