The on-loan Wigan Athletic strikerâ€™s latest appearance was as a second-half substitute in the 4-1 win over his former club Norwich after Christian Benteke, Gabby Agbonlahor and Andi Weimann had done the first-half damage.
He told the Birmingham Mail: When youâ€™ve got the forwards weâ€™ve got you know when you first come here that youâ€™re not just going to get straight into the side.
â€œI think when I was signed it was more to help the lads along and give them that depth that we didnâ€™t have.
â€œObviously they had lost the big man, Libor Kozak, on the training ground which left a gap for myself.
â€œI just want to try to help the lads and give them that wisdom and experience. Obviously, I want to play football and I want to play games.
â€œBut when youâ€™ve got the likes of Christian and Gabby and Andi there itâ€™s tough to get in."
