"I need to obviously get more games," Bendtner told Arsenal TV. "The more you play with the team as a regular starter, then the more you get to learn and know the team.
"If I can get a good run in the side, then I am sure you will see that I can do it."
Bendtner knows there is little margin for error as the race for the title enters a crucial phase.
He said: "We have had a lot of games which ended up with draws when we should have won.
"We all know we have to beat Middlesbrough to get towards winning the trophy, so we will give everything we can."
