After their draw with Everton, Dunn purred: "Roque's a real threat.

"He's got three goals already so is well on the way to getting 20 goals like Benni last season.

"Roque's had a few criticisms about his goalscoring record. But he's certainly doing the business for us, and long may it continue.

"He's a good lad. His English is great and he's fitted in well.

"He's got everything you want in a striker - he's big, strong, powerful and quick.

"He and Benni look menacing as a partnership. They are both extremely good players.

"We've got an abundance of good players now.

"When you look at our bench today we had Jason Roberts and Matt Derbyshire waiting to come on. If you put any two of them out, we'll create problems."
