Exeter City boss Paul Tisdale remains convinced Scott Golbourne will prove to be a successful signing for the club.
Golbourne has struggled to make a sustained impact at St James Park since joining the League One side from Reading in the summer.
However, the left-back has started the Grecians' last two matches and impressed in the weekend's 1-1 draw against Wycombe Wanderers.
Tisdale said: "He was great and it just shows it does take players a while to settle.
"I know he will come good, but you have to give everyone time."
