Everton boss David Moyes has backed James Beattie to come good in front of goal.
Former Southampton star Beattie has struggled to establish himself in Moyes' plans so far this season.
Beattie is set for an extended run in the side after injuries to Andy Johnson and Tim Cahill and Moyes revealed Beattie has been working hard to get back to top form.
"James has got goals in him and I'm sure he will go on to prove that," said Moyes.
"He can lead the line, he can win headers and there are not many who can do that any more.
"He has been a little unfortunate because we've found a way of playing with Andy Johnson and Tim Cahill just behind and they have scored a lot of goals between them.
"Now James is involved and he knows it's there for him to grasp."
