Milan Baros insists he is not afraid of the competition for places in the Portsmouth squad.
Baros joined Pompey from Lyon in the January transfer window on loan until the end of the season.
The Czech international has started Portsmouth's last two fixtures against Manchester United and Chelsea.
However, manager Harry Redknapp boasts strength in attack, with David Nugent, John Utaka, Jermain Defoe and Nwankwo Kanu all vying for starting roles.
Nugent is currently sidelined through injury, but Utaka and Kanu will soon return from the Africa Cup of Nations following Nigeria's exit.
Baros is confident he will not buckle under the pressure of performing, though, and is thoroughly looking forward to the remainder of the campaign.
"Football in England is absolutely different to football in France, but nothing is new for me as I spent five years in England before," he told Pravo.
"I have played just two games. I know all my new team-mates but we are not attuned so far. That will come soon.
"We want to get into Europe, and the potential of achieving that is there.
"We are not at our full strength yet - four players are still at the Africa Cup of Nations.
"Competition will be large, but they have not bought me to make me sit on the bench. I have never been afraid of competition.
"I know it will not be easy. I don't expect to play in every single game."
