Aston Villa new boy Libor Kozak admits he needs to consistently impress if he is to be a regular starter for the Midlanders.
Kozak grabbed the winning goal in last weekend's victory at Norwich in only his second appearance for the club.
"It's definitely a good start as it would have been worse if I had to wait (for the first goal)," Kozak told isport.blesk.cz. "It's fine that I scored but now it's even more important to build on that.
"Coach Lambert praised me after the match but I have to show a lot from my abilities yet.
"First of all I need to adapt myself because it's a lot different to Italy. I am far from my ideal form."
"But it's going to take some time yet, though I have a good feeling."
"I would be very glad if I could start and enjoy the atmosphere on the pitch. Motivation is huge, it's a massive game, so hopefully we can do well."
