Watford striker Marlon King is hoping to make an impact in The Premiership next season.
The 26-year-old is confident that he can emulate the likes of Andrew Johnson in transferring his prolific Championship form into the top flight.

"You look at players like Andy Johnson and Darren Bent who have come down from The Championship and they've probably been told the same thing so I'm going to stay open-minded and get on and enjoy it," he told Sky Sports News.
"You've got to be confident in your own ability because if you're not there's no point playing football.
"I'm going to look forward to it and if the manager picks me I'll give 110 percent to show what I can do."
King reckons The Hornets can make a successful fist of their Premiership season, but admits that they may have to strengthen their ranks.
"Obviously it's a well known fact that clubs coming up from The Premiership can't survive without bringing players in and I'm sure the gaffer and the board have done their homework and have their eyes on certain players," he explained.
King lavished praise on boss Aidy Boothroyd, pointing out the qualities that make him such a unique manager.
"I think he's just come in with no fear. Not much was expected of him, people were writing us off," he reflected.
"He's come in with new ideas, man management skills, and he's shown us that it's all about team spirit, bonding and working hard.
"He's also said that if you are good enough you're old enough and that's paid dividends."
