Hull City full-back Liam Rosenior has praised the impact goalkeeper Allan McGregor has had on the team.
The 31-year-old Scotland international joined the Tigers from Turkish side Besiktas in the summer.
The former Rangers number one has conceded seven goals in his first seven Premier League matches, including keeping three clean sheets.
"He's a fantastic goalkeeper. You can see why he's played for his country," Rosenior told BBC Radio Humberside.
"It was a great bit of business from the gaffer to sign him. I can't think of many goalkeepers I'd take over him.
"He exudes confidence and spreads that to the back four. A lot of our good performances have started from him and I'm enjoying playing in front of him."
The Tigers have made a good start to life back in the top flight and currently sit in eighth position with 11 points from seven matches.
Rosenior believes the side are capable of maintaining their good run of form after the international break.
"I'm not surprised with where we are because I know the quality we have at the club," he said.
"We need to keep our underdog mentality going and I think we're underrated because every team we've played this season has known they've been in a game."
