Dimitar Berbatov scored a late goal for the Cottagers in Saturday's 3-3 draw at Reading, while Bryan Ruiz had earlier come off the bench to fire home.

With Hugo Rodallega and Mladen Petric also among Jol's options, the manager admits he is spoilt for choice up front.

The Dutchman said: "What is my best forward line? That is still my problem - and it's already October.

"Ruiz is probably my most creative player but on the other hand Berbatov is a very good second striker.

"It's like a luxury problem.

"But it was good to see Ruiz coming on and changing our style, even though we looked fine first half.

"The thing is we started the season with Moussa Dembele, Bryan Ruiz and Mladen Petric against Norwich and it was probably our best game of my time here.

"Then we had Rodallega and Berba against West Brom and it was another great game."

He added: "Ruiz and Berbatov never played together before.

"I feel that Berba is not a typical No.9 and that is why I'm playing Rodallega because he has pace and he stretches defences."
