"Dylan's looked very good and is certainly the type of player the club's been looking for in terms of a target man up front. I'll be monitoring things closely to see how Dylan, Chris and Paul can combine in that front third," Herbert said.

"I think it'll be great," he added. "It's an area that I wouldn't say has been overlooked (in terms of football) but hasn't had the opportunities in the past. Hopefully we'll get a big crowd off the back of what happened at the World Cup and the club's glad to be getting out and about around the country."
