Preston North End manager Alex Neil insists Emil Riis Jakobsen has given everyone a lift at the club.
A real hit with the supporters already, the Danish forward has started the Lilywhites' last two matches and caused havoc up front on both occasions.
He made his league debut start against QPR and then topped that midweek performance against Huddersfield three days later.
Many of PNE's players have hailed their new team mate in the last week and the manager has been no different.
Speaking in his latest pre-match press conference, Neil discussed the impact Riis has had in such a short space of time.
"The better players you've got in your group - if you go into any team, look around and think 'he's quality, he's quality, he can do this and he can do that' - automatically you're just thinking that you've got people that can win you a game," he said.
"And when you've got that, certainly as a player, you go into the game thinking 'right if I do my job well, then these guys will win us the match'.
"I think the big fella has give a lot of confidence to other players as well.
"Because they know they've got a big threat up there that can do the work, and obviously we've got Seani, Jayden and other lads who give us something different."
Riis has displayed all the qualities that the North End boss has been desperate for up top - the only thing his last two performances have lacked is a goal.
Judging by those displays though that won't be too far away.
While his immediate goal scoring threat is good to see, there's one other trait of Riis' that has particularly pleased Alex Neil.
"I knew he was going to be quick and he'd be able to take the ball in, so I never really questioned his attributes as a player," he said.
"But what you tend to find with players you sign, is that mentality is absolutely crucial.
"Because if you're a really good player elsewhere and then come into another group and are just decent, that's mentally difficult to accept for a lot of players because they've gone from being 'the guy' if you like, to a good player.
"You've got to have the right mentality and confidence to show everyone how good you can be, and I think what Emil has is exactly that, where he's come in and thought 'right, I need to earn the respect of everybody and show everyone what I can do.'
"It's such a refreshing thing when you've got guys with that mentality.
"He'd only really had one full season so I didn't want to heap too much pressure on him, but I was just hoping he'd come in and show the bits we'd seen in him.
"Has he exceeded what I thought he was capable of initially? At the moment probably yes, I think it's fair to say that because he's come in and really hit the ground running.
"He has made big impacts in the last two games for us and that's what you're hoping for with the players you bring in, so we're all delighted with him."
