Hull City manager Iain Dowie has hailed Tigers striker Jozy Altidore and believes he could be a key player in their bid to beat the drop.
The forward is currently on loan from Spanish outfit Villarreal and he impressed Dowie with his performance as City beat Fulham 2-0 last Saturday.
Dowie told the Hully Daily Mail: "I have seen something in him. He has quality in his feet and is a handful and could be the player that keeps Hull up.
"He can run, he has power, a cool finisher, lovely feet and yeah, he put in a real good shift."
Dowie added: "Jozy is a lad I will be driving mad and getting at him to get an intensity in his training. He is a laid-back lad, that is not a criticism, we love him to death we just need to get a bit of devil in his stomach."
Altidore is set to keep his place in the Hull side for their clash at Stoke on Saturday after his impressive show against Fulham.
