Hull assistant Steve Agnew has praised new signing Maynor Figueroa after he scored a spectacular winner in a friendly at Peterborough.
The 30-year-old full-back moved to the KC Stadium on a free transfer after his contract at Wigan expired at the end of last season.
His preparations for the new campaign have been hampered by a persistent groin injury, with Monday's run-out against Peterborough just his second appearance in a Hull shirt.
However, he showed glimpses of his best form against the League One outfit at London Road, with his 30-yard first half strike deciding the contest.
Speaking after the game assistant boss Agnew said he was excited about what the Honduran can offer the club this season as the big kick-off edges ever closer.
"He's a strong boy and he packs a punch when he's shooting. It's a fantastic goal, 30 yards out in the top corner," he said.
"That's the quality he's got. He's an experienced player who knows his position and he could be a really valuable asset for us.
"He's had a groin problem at the back end of last season but he's getting there now."
