Northampton's experienced striker Clive Platt has set his sights on firing the club into League One next season after joining from Coventry.
The 34-year-old signed a two-year deal with the Cobblers after rejecting an offer from the Sky Blues following their relegation from the Championship.
Northampton are in the process of rebuilding under Aidy Boothroyd after slumping to a lowly 20th finish last term.
However, the former Colchester target man told Sky Sports that he is determined to play a big role for his new club after a stop-start campaign at the Ricoh Arena.
"It isn't going to be easy to gain promotion from League Two, but everything seems geared towards that at the moment," he told Sky Sports.
"They avoided relegation this season, which was the main objective and now they can rebuild and push towards the top-half of the table.
"Once that happens then it can lead to bigger and better things with a good group of players assembled at the club.
"I've played in that division before, so I am fully aware how tough it is going to be, but that didn't really influence my decision because being at a club that was moving in the right direction and aiming for promotion was what really mattered to me.
"Obviously, working with a manager that I've worked with before and know will do everything he can to achieve his goals was a massive plus as well.
"Although I'm getting on I still strive to bring the best out of my ability and I'm not sure that that was going to be the case at Coventry.
"They seemed to have a bit-part role for me there and I want to get the most out of the years ahead of me.
"I missed pretty much all of pre-season last year and wasn't really available until October due to a few back injuries and injections, so touch-wood I can keep clear of injury and get a good pre-season under my belt."
