West Bromwich Albion boss Alan Irvine was encouraged by Brown Ideye's performance in defeat to QPR.
The Nigerian is yet to score a league goal for the Baggies but Irvine is hopeful his blossoming relationship with Varela and Stephane Sessegnon can soon produce results for his side.
"I think he's progressing," Irvine said of Ideye.
"He did a lot of good things. He had a good chance to score and probably should have done. But he is getting sharper and sharper, and better with each passing week. And I feel it's only a matter of time before he gets his first Premier League goal.
"It's a front three we've only been able to put together recently. Silvestre is similar to Brown, in that he missed pre-season and then got injured. But that three up front look like a handful, and we are quite pleased with how it's developing."
