Michael Chopra has expressed his hunger to add to his goal tally after netting twice in Ipswich's 3-1 victory over Brighton on Saturday.
The striker scored for the first time in front of the Portman Road faithful following his summer move from Cardiff City, having not found the net since grabbing a brace in a win over Bristol City on the opening day of the season.
The 28-year-old now intends to continue his goal hunt against his former club Cardiff in the Welsh capital after the international break.
He told Town's official website: "I feel good and I think if I keep playing the way I am doing then I will add to my strikes and reach the targets I've set myself.
"I've got four goals now this season, but I think I should be on about seven if not for some great saves by keepers in recent weeks. But if I keep getting in the right positions then I'm sure the chances will come and then it's up to me to put them away.
"I've got a lot of belief in my abilities and I'm confident that if I'm presented with the chances then I will score my fair share."
Meanwhile, goalkeeper David Stockdale has again been named as part of England's squad for Friday's European Championship qualifier against Montenegro after making the bench against Bulgaria in September.
