Giuseppe Rossi's contribution against Portsmouth was superb in conditions that were close to ridiculous.
The 19-year-old, on loan from Manchester United, was thrown into the starting line-up for the first time and he repayed Glenn Roeder with a great goal at the start of the second-half.
Roeder: 'Giuseppe Rossi has been very patient waiting for an opportunity. He will certainly get plenty of opportunities between now and the end of December.
'It was a fantastic finish. I would expect him to finish there because I have seen it so often.
'I have seen it in games when he was at Manchester United, whether it was his opportunities in the first team or in reserve-team football.
'He is, in my opinion, a natural goal scorer, and he worked so hard for the team as well. He was a real pain for their defence.'
