Rangers striker Jean-Claude Darcheville is determined to fight for his place at Ibrox and get back on the goal trail.
The 33-year-old has failed to score so far this season, although four of his six appearances have been from the bench.
Manager Walter Smith has tended to prefer Kris Boyd and Kenny Miller up front, while Kyle Lafferty and Andrius Velicka are set to return to full fitness.
Darcheville has started the Gers' last two games, though, and given more game-time, he is confident of rediscovering his scoring touch.
"I would like to start games and the fact I haven't for most of the season has made it difficult to get goals," he told the official Rangers magazine.
"Obviously, if you are going to have a good chance of scoring, you need to play more minutes.
"I've not done that recently and I understand why. We have a lot of strikers and the manager can only use two of us at a time.
"Boydy and Kenny have been playing together quite a bit lately and they have both scored a few goals.
"That makes it difficult for the manager to change things but I am focused, I am working hard and I will be ready for him to use me when he wants to."
Darcheville has scored 15 goals since joining the Gers from Bordeaux in July 2007, despite 24 of his 54 appearances coming as a substitute.
His last goal came in the 3-0 win at St Mirren in May and the Frenchman hopes he does not have to wait long to show off his trademark goal celebration once more.
"I'm sure the supporters would like to see me saluting them again and I'm exactly the same," he said.
"I am just waiting for my chance to do that just now and I'm sure that moment can come quickly.
"For a striker, it is never good when you go a long time without scoring goals. Getting them is what helps us build our confidence.
"When you go four or five games without hitting the net, as I have done recently, it is important you work hard in training to change that.
"That is what I have been doing at Murray Park and I am still sure I can pick up again the way I did last season.
"I don't worry that I have already scored my last goal for the club. There are a lot of strikers here but I always feel capable of scoring.
"We want to win the SPL so I need to remain sure I can do a job for the team, especially as we will need to use all of our players if we are to win the league."
