Lowestoft Town director of football Craig Fleming believes the club's Polish duo can provide a boost to their Conference North campaign.
Dawid Radomski and Jacek Zielonka have been used sparingly by the management team so far this season but Fleming believes the pair have shown signs of settling into their new surroundings.
Radomski was an impressive presence at the heart of the Blues' midfield in their 1-1 draw at Stalybridge Celtic whilst Zielonka has shown he has the pace to unsettle defenders at this level. Fleming believes there is even more to come from the pair, who signed in the summer after a successful trial.
'You could tell when they both came in that they are good players - technically they are very good,' said Fleming, who is still on the lookout for reinforcements to his squad.
'It has taken them a bit of time to get used to the English game but we're pleased with how they're developing. You can see they have the technical ability to make an impression and if you've got that then you can adjust to the physical demands.'

Radomski could start against Tamworth this afternoon and the Blues will be hoping to welcome back several other first teamers who missed the midweek draw at Stalybridge Celtic.
Ashlee Jones, Curtis Haynes-Brown, Jefferson Louis and Robert Eagle will all come back into contention whilst Sam Gaughran will also be available as his suspension for a red card at Guiseley doesn't take effect until later this month.

Lowestoft will be glad to get back to the relative sanctuary of Crown Meadow although they have shown signs in recent weeks of curing their travel sickness.
Fleming believes the Blues' gutsy display at Stalybridge on Tuesday demonstrated the level of commitment the Trawlerboys are giving in their maiden Conference North campaign.
'If there was ever a game that sums up what we're up against it was this one,' said the former Norwich City defender.
'We were up against a full time outfit, missing several players through work commitments and four of our lads had to drive up themselves because they couldn't get enough time off work to leave early. They arrived 25 minutes before kick-off so to then put in the performance we did was superb. The core of the club is really good but I don't think certain people realise what we're up against.
'We are up against full time clubs and when you have to travel that far on a Tuesday night it makes it a very difficult task for everyone.'
Lowestoft went down to defeat against today's opponents in the FA Cup when a threadbare Blues side tasted a narrow defeat at The Lamb.
However, Fleming hopes his side can turn the tide on Andy Morrell's charges as they look to pull away from the relegation zone.
'They are a solid outfit,' said Fleming.
'Hopefully we learned enough from that to get the three points. This is a very tough league and anyone can beat anyone – that's been demonstrated so far this season. But I think we've shown signs of bringing it all together and adjusting to the demands of the division.'
