St Mirren boss Gus MacPherson believes playing Andy Dorman in an advanced role can provide the club with valuable goals in the run in.
The Buddies lie just a point clear of bottom-side Falkirk and alongside Kilmarnock on 29 points, but with a superior goal difference, as the season reaches its climax.
Saints take on Killie at St Mirren Park on Saturday in a massive clash towards the foot of the table and MacPherson believes the attack minded Dorman, who has now scored four goals in his last five games, can make the difference.
MacPherson said: "Andy can be very effective up front because he's so good at timing his runs.
"His confidence has come back and with the quality Andy has he will score if we keep making chances.
"He is flexible and can fit in to any position in an attacking role, whether it be through the middle or out wide or up front. He also has composure in front of goal.
"We've been criticised for not scoring enough but our goals total is the highest it has been in the SPL in the past four years.
"We've scored 34 and the most before that was 32. But what has been lacking is wins and that is the most important thing."
