Motherwell manager Stuart McCall hailed the impact of striker John Sutton in the home win against Ross County.
Sutton, in his second spell at Fir Park, fired a double as Well came back from a goal down to win 3-1.
"He is good in the dressing room, he is popular, and if you give him the service, he will score goals," said McCall.
"And not only that, he is a handful. Everyone looked at big [Michael] Higdon as a handful and Sutty is the same."
Melvin De Leeuw's heavily deflected strike put County in front at half-time.
But a header then a well taken strike by Englishman Sutton turned the match around. And substitute Bob McHugh made the points safe with a third.
McCall said he was delighted with Sutton's goals following his two-year stint at Hearts.
"I have always liked big Sutty," McCall said. "I was disappointed to lose him but I understood totally when he left.
"Once I realised he was going to be up for grabs and we lost Higdon, it was a no-brainer for me."
The win sees Motherwell just three points behind league leaders Inverness CT.
