Darren Bent believes it is only a matter of time before he starts scoring again for Aston Villa.
The striker is convinced that if he sticks to his policy of being patient in front of goal, he will add to his tally of two Premier League goals since his big-money move from Sunderland in January.
Bent - who cost Villa £24m, scored the winning goal on his debut against Manchester City before scoring at Old Trafford in his side's defeat against Manchester United.
However, the 27-year-old has since struggled to make an impact, although he is adamant that if he stays focused, the goals will come.
He told the Daily Express: "When the goals don't come, you have to keep playing the same way, keep believing.
"You have to stay in position, the same positions you would do if things are going well and, eventually, the ball will drop for you. Staying positive is the key. Don't hide.
"Don't try to wander into positions where you can't score and know you won't score. That's the way I approach it and that's the way every striker at this level would approach it.
"I'd say I'm a patient man, it depends what it's about.
"I've had to be patient in football, I've had to wait for my opportunities. I'd say in the game I am patient. All comes to him who waits. That's what I have to do."
Despite the club not winning a major trophy since the League Cup in 1996, Bent said: "There is no denying Aston Villa is a big club. When someone says, 'do you want to come and play centre-forward for this team?' you jump at the chance.
"There's only Manchester United, Arsenal, Chelsea and Liverpool that you'd put ahead of Villa in that category. For me, it was just about getting here."
