"It's just been a confidence thing I think," he said. "When I was coming back from injury I just wanted to make sure that if I got the opportunity to play as a striker that I would show the manager what I could do.
"And when I got that chance it gave me the confidence to flourish. That's been really key to my form. I'm happy, and now I just need to kick on from here."
