New Norwich City striker, Kyle Lafferty reckons he knows what is required to push for promotion after a single season in Italy with Palermo which saw them promoted to the top league, Serie A.
Lafferty has already opened his Canary shoal scoring account in pre-season, with the winner against Dereham before scoring a peach of a free kick against Braintree in mid-week.
Talking to canaries.co.uk, Lafferty says he feels good.
"It`s nice to score a goal no matter who you play against, but these games are all about getting the team settled, and getting to know each other and who you`re playing with, but it`s always a bonus when you score a goal," he said.
"I feel good. Last year I matched my highest goal tally in the league in one season, so hopefully this year I can go one better and break that record. That`s not the most important thing though - what are most important are my performances and getting this team back in the Premier League."
One thing that has struck the new man though, is the team spirit in the Norwich dressing room and he's clearly fitted in already.
"This is one of the best teams for team bonding that I`ve been in," he said. "Everyone gets on so well, and that will count for a lot when we have to dig deep. Seeing the way we`ve trained and worked so hard, there`s a hunger there to win as a team and fight for each other.
"There are a few jokers in the team which is always good. The lads have been superb, and in training too it`s been easy to know the guys. At the end of the day we`re here to do one thing and I`m pretty sure we`ll be up there."
This is positive stuff from Lafferty. I know you can't put too much stock into what players say, but the team spirit comments make good reading. You won't do anything if your dressing room is divided.
The big man looks likely to miss today's fist tour game but already looks to be an asset to the squad.
