Crystal Palace striker Pablo Counago has vowed to repay manager George Burley's faith in him by getting back on track.
The Spaniard joined Palace on a season-long loan from Ipswich this summer, but has endured a stuttering first few months at Selhurst Park.
It is the second time Burley has signed the former Celta Vigo forward, having bought him from Los Celestes in 2001 while manager of the Tractor Boys.
But despite a slow start, the 31-year-old's winner at home to Doncaster on Saturday and an excellent performance showed that he had the ability to revive his career, and promised that there was more to come.
"I've had a few problems over the last couple of years with my focus and enthusiasm for football but I am getting it back here," he told the Croydon Guardian.
"I have a great relationship with George and have done since my Ipswich days. There are some managers that know how to get the best out of you and it is a great feeling to be in that environment.
"Yes, I would like to have played more but I know the manager has been happy with my attitude in training and he encourages me every single day.
"All I can do is keep working hard and making the most of my chances when they come along."
