New Carlisle signing Craig Curran is hoping his summer switch to Cumbria can help him feed his hunger for goals this season.
The 20-year-old striker completed his move from Tranmere Rovers last month after a frustrating season at Prenton Park.
The promising youngster managed just seven goals while playing in a wide role as part of a three-man forward line.
And he told skysports.com that he is eager to feature in a more central role under Brunton Park boss Greg Abbott.
"The ambition of the manager was the same as my own and I want to play up front as part of a two rather than the three that we played at Tranmere," he said.
"In that system I was used more as a wide man and you don't get many chances out there. So, when I spoke to the manager he pretty much sold it to me to come here.
"I enjoyed playing in that system under Les (Parry) there, but I just felt that it was time for me to progress as a natural striker, which is my favoured position.
"I judge myself on goals and I just wasn't getting enough chances in their system.
"Sometimes I wasn't even getting a sniff of goal for the whole 90 minutes and that's a bad feeling for a striker. So, I felt moving on would allow me to progress as a player."
