Norwich manager Chris Hughton hailed the impact of Kei Kamara after the Sierra Leone forward's first goal in English football helped spark a late comeback as captain Grant Holt scored a stoppage-time winner to beat Everton 2-1 at Carrow Road.
Kamara joined last month on loan from Major League Soccer club Sporting Kansas City and his introduction just before the hour breathed new life into the Canaries, who were trailing to a first-half goal from Leon Osman.
"Kei is a different type of player to whom we have up front and we are delighted for him," said Hughton, who had started with both Holt and January signing Luciano Becchio in attack.
"He had been here to England before (on trial at Stoke), but these things are all about timings and it was right for us. He has that ability to get beyond and is good in the air, he gives us good possibilities."
Hughton added: "Once you are 1-0 down and you get back to 1-1, you have to be honest and say you settle for that. But the lads wanted something different and showed great drive and determination to get the winner."
