With one win in their last 12 games teh Irons are sliding down the league like an out of control lift but Jenkinson believes Valencia can spark a recovery.
Speaking to the official site he said: “Enner looks very confident at the moment and I’m happy for him because he’s been out for a few weeks.
“He’s been very sharp in training and he’s showed it today with his run in the second half.
“I’m happy for him and we’re going to need him because it looks like we’re going to be without Diafra Sakho for a while.
“It’s good for Enner because it looks like he’ll play a big part for us for the rest of the season.”
Jenkinson – looking to the weekend game against QPR – said: “Queens Park Rangers need every point they can get but so do we,” he added.
“We want to finish as high up the league table as possible, after they start we had we’re not just going to accept a mid-table finish.
“QPR need the points but we need to play our part 100 per cent.”
