Watford striker Darius Henderson believes he is still to reach his peak.
The 25-year-old has scored twice in his last two Premiership games finally breaking his duck in the win at West Ham earlier this month.
Henderson is delighted to have finally found his form and he believes it will be a few more years before he is at his prime.
"I am only 25, and, as a target man, they say it is not until you are 28 that you begin to reach your prime," said Henderson.
"I just want to improve and give my all for the team I am playing for.
"I believe the experience [of going so long without a goal] has made me a stronger person.
"I believe I was out of order for being disappointed. I shouldn't need to wait for a goal to lift my performances.
"But I have scored the goals, and now, hopefully, I can score some more."
Henderson admitted he was disappointed that Watford could not beat ten-man Wigan on Wednesday night.
The former Gillingham forward believes Watford are improving with every game, but that they must start picking up maximum points from the remainder of their games this season
"Our fitness levels have to be a decisive factor, and we need to have quality. I think we are improving," added Henderson.
"I am getting the chances now, and I am slightly disappointed not to have put more of them away against Wigan.
"Hopefully, I can do so in the next game (against Everton).
"We must approach the match in the right manner. We are in a relegation battle, and we have to fight now.
"We must approach every game to win from now on, because, if we don't, we will find ourselves going down.
"We must take the positives out of the Wigan game. We avoided defeat against a good team who are also fighting for their lives.
"All credit to them. They went down to 10 men, but still put us under a lot of pressure."
