Cardiff City manager Ole Gunnar Solskjaer has hailed the importance of on-loan winger Wilfried Zaha despite his failure to come off the bench in the defeat to Tottenham Hotspur.
Zaha made the temporary switch to the Cardiff City Stadium in January after struggling to make an impression in his first season at Solskjaer's former side Manchester United.
After earning rave reviews at Crystal Palace last season, Zaha became Sir Alex Ferguson's final signing at Old Trafford when he secured his services in January 2013, though he played out the remainder of the campaign at Selhurst Park and helped them return to the Premier League via the play-offs.
Despite a slow-start to his Premier League career, Solskjaer believes the 21-year-old can help Cardiff avoid relegation, who currently sit in 19th place and three points adrift of safety.
"Wilf's been very positive since he's come," he was quoted by Sky Sports.
"He's made a great contribution in some of the games. He's got talent we'll use in the next 10 games definitely."
Cardiff, who are still undergoing a transition period after sacking Malky Mackay in December, face a six-pointer against basement side Fulham this weekend, and Solskjaer is confident his side can claim the three points.
"It's a winnable game, against a team in the same situation as us," he added.
"It will be two teams that have to go out there and try to win the game. A draw would be no good for either of us, so I think you will see some positive football from both sides.
"We've got the international break now, but we've got to keep minds on Saturday."
