Yes, it's a big decision (to choose between Defoe and Adebayor), but we are extremely happy.
It's very important for us to have Jermain back, particularly because he found the back of the net.
Goalkeepers have been making impossible saves against him and he finally got the ball in the net the other day with a tremendous goal that helped us get the three points.
It's good because he had a blip in terms of goals, not performances - he was always sharp - but he had a couple of injuries.
Now he is back he gives us that quality and confidence by scoring.

I have thought about my future. When Martin O'Neill was here we did speak briefly.
That has changed and it's not the time for me to go speaking to the new manager about what he wants for next season.
The main priority is to have Premier League status for next year. Once that's sorted, once we are safe, I'm sure there will be a conversation to be had.
I know what I want to do next year and we will just see what happens.
Just a note of interest for Spurs fans, I offered Robert lewandowski to Spurs when he was stll playing in Poland, for less than 5m, pity !From @SteveArchibald8 on Twitter:
To be fair, when they said no I offered him to other clubs who also said no !From @SteveArchibald8 on Twitter:
Aaron Lennon has returned to training, raising hopes that he will make his comeback from a knee injury in Tottenham's game at Wigan on Saturday.
Lennon, a star performer for Spurs this season, hobbled off in the 2-2 home draw against Basle three weeks ago and has not played since.
The backwards baseball cap is so very Ronaldo.
