Robert Earnshaw is enjoying his football again following his summer switch to Nottingham Forest.
The Wales international became the first player in 15 years to directly cross the East Midlands divide which exists between Forest and arch-rivals Derby when he joined the Reds in May.
Having endured a turbulent one-season stay with the Rams, in which he struggled to make an impact, the Zambian-born front-man was delighted to see the back of Pride Park.
He has settled quickly into his new surroundings on the banks of the Trent, bagging five goals so far this season as he looks to help Forest recover from a difficult start to their Championship campaign.
"I like this place," Earnshaw told Sky Sports News.
"I want to do well for this team and I never really felt that at Derby, for whatever reason, I never felt comfortable.
"I never felt right there, so you have to move on."
Earnshaw is now set to face his former employers on Sunday, with Forest gearing up for a passionate derby day at Pride Park.
He has been left in no doubt as to what the game means to all those connected with the Reds, with the local boys in Colin Calderwood's squad instilling in their new team-mate the importance of success this weekend.
"Ever since I came here that's all they've been talking about, 'as long as we beat Derby'," added Earnsahw.
"I think maybe the reason we won in midweek (away at Crystal Palace), after not wining for a few games, was the build-up for this game."
Forest had gone 11 games without a win prior to Tuesday's trip to Selhurst Park, but emerged with maximum points from a 2-1 success.
With confidence within the ranks now restored, Earnshaw believes the club are ideally placed to claim a first win over Derby since March 2003.
"We came up off the bottom, so there's a belief there," he said.
"There is a belief with the fans, with the club and the players that we can go into the game and win it."
