"I think I'm getting there and it's getting better and it's good. It's a big challenge for me. I'm looking forward to it.
"As a striker wherever you go it's a big challenge and you're under pressure but you just keeping playing your football. With the quality players we've got at Everton I think we'll be okay. The partnership between myself and Andrew (Johnson) is working."
He added: "When you're a striker and you play and don't score goals you're confidence is a little bit down.
"Andy is doing the right things on the pitch and working hard in training and the goals will come. Once they come, they'll never stop.
"When you start scoring it looks easy but at the moment it looks difficult.
"Andy's been doing good things and the fans are behind him and everyone in the squad knows what ability he's got and the goals that he can score from the things we see in training, we just all need to be a little bit patient but the goal will come and he'll never stop scoring."
