Scunthorpe manager Alan Knill is convinced Bobby Grant has the potential to become as good as any at Glanford Park.
The Iron have been blessed with strikers like Gary Hooper, Paul Hayes, Martin Paterson, Billy Sharp and Andy Keogh in recent seasons and Grant, who arrived for £260,000 from Accrington in the summer, can follow in their footsteps, according to Knill.
The Iron boss told the club's official website: "Bobby has got to nine goals this season without anyone really sitting up and taking any notice of him.
"We [recently] sat down with him going over his game. It's very easy to forget that he's still so young."
Knill added: "Whenever I work with Bobby I always get the impression that there's such a good player in there. All he needs is a bit of fine tuning.
"If he can calm himself down and make his all-round game better then there is a really good player in Bobby."
