Marvin Sordell aims to follow the lead of former strike partner Danny Graham and turn Watford goals into Premier League success.
Sordell became the latest Hornets striker to make the move to the top flight when he secured a £4million switch to Bolton in the January transfer window.
And the England U21 international - who played his part in a 42-goal partnership with Graham at Watford last season - is encouraged by the success of his old team-mate at Swansea.
"Danny has done well but it's no surprise to me," Sordell told the Daily Star. "I knew he would do well and score the type of goals he has.
"He has taken his chances, come up and done well - and so have Swansea and Norwich, teams who have players mainly from the Championship.
"That definitely gives me encouragement. They are all shining in the Premier League.
"I believe in my own ability and that's what I aim to do too."
Sordell has walked straight into a relegation battle at Bolton but the 21-year-old maintains it was an easy decision.
He added: "A chance to play in the Premier League for a club like this, with the players and staff they have got, is one you just can't turn down.
"As a player you want to come up against the best and prove yourself.
"For me, this is just the beginning and I have to improve as a player and change my game to stay in the Premier League.
"We believe we can stay up and I don't see why not. There are a lot of pivotal games left.
"We are just going to go out there, play our football and prove people wrong because we are good enough to stay in this league."
Sordell will be hoping to make his first start for Bolton when they visit Manchester City on Saturday.
