Wolves striker Kevin Doyle is not beating himself up about his lack of goals this season and is confident he will soon end his drought.
Doyle has not scored in 12 Premier League appearances this season, with his only goals coming in the Carling Cup against Notts County.
The Republic of Ireland international netted nine times in the league last term and feels he can emerge from his barren spell to rediscover his touch in front of goal.
He said: "I've had spells like this before. There's no point being depressed about it.
"You have to wake up tomorrow and try to go again. I'll keep working hard, keep doing the right things and my luck will change.
"It's different when you're playing in the Championship and you're top of the league. You always get chances to score.
"But when you're playing in a team always going to be fighting in the bottom three, it could be difficult and you're not going to score.
"Every week you have to keep going and keep working hard. It's better playing well than playing bad and not scoring."
Meanwhile, Doyle has called for international friendlies to follow competitive matches in being switched from Wednesday to Tuesday evenings.
Doyle, in the Republic squad for the midweek game with Norway, said: "I'll be honest, it's probably not 100% ideal playing Wednesdays.
"We play Wednesday night and we've got an away game with Blackpool, who are massive competitors for us, on Saturday.
"We'll get back Thursday afternoon and we barely do a warm-down on Friday because we played on Wednesday night.
"We're travelling on the bus again on Friday for Saturday's game.
"I don't know why they changed the qualifiers to Tuesday nights - which was a great idea - but left the friendlies on a Wednesdays. It's a bit stupid."
