Leeds United boss credited Marcus Antonsson for his start to life at the club.
The Swedish striker, a £2 million signing from Kalmar in July, opened his account for Leeds in timely fashion last night by netting an 89th-minute equaliser in the eventual penalty shootout win over Fleetwood Town in the League Cup.
During extra-time, Antonsson also won a penalty which Chris Wood duly dispatched but Fleetwood levelled up at 2-2 to force the shootout on 111 minutes.
It could be a watershed moment in his Leeds career after missing perhaps United's best chance in Sunday's 3-0 defeat at QPR when the score was 1-0.
And Monk has acknowledged that the 25-year-old has impressed him, telling LUTV: "He's done very well. That's why we brought him to the club. He's a different type of striker to what we have; he's got very good movement. He's a very intelligent player with his movement and obviously he knows how to score goals."
If Leeds wind up winning promotion to the Premier League then a marksman is key. Monk will find out over the coming weeks and months if Antonsson is the man to do that, but the early signs seem promising.
Despite missing a chance against QPR, the opportunity came his way in the first place and it is perhaps more concerning if a striker is not getting goalscoring chances.
Antonsson will hope to start again in Saturday's visit of Birmingham City.
