Zaki is on loan for the season after scoring 22 goal in 54 games for Cairo side El Zamalek - and 27 in 48 Egypt internationals.

Bruce said: "He was just like the player I saw when I went over to Egypt, hustling and bustling around.

"I wondered whether he could reproduce that in the Premier League and it looks like he can.

"If he keeps his feet on the ground and adds a little bit of composure to his game then he'll do really well for us.

"But we're frustrated today because of those first 15 minutes when we were dreadful.

"There was no way we could have expected to come back and win here after giving them two goals so dearly but we nearly did."
