Collins John hopes his recent injury problems are behind him after completing his loan switch from Fulham to Watford until the end of the season.
The 22-year-old Dutchman has failed to start a game for the Cottagers for over 12 months and recently returned to the club after spending a loan spell with Leicester City.
John, who moved to Craven Cottage from FC Twente in 2004, almost moved to Watford last January, and told the Hornets' official website: "A lot has happened since then.
"I know I have to win the fans over, I'm just thankful that I've been given the opportunity to come here again and that everyone still wanted me.
"I've been injured while at Leicester, but I've seen the medical team here already and they've been fantastic. I'm aiming at being able to play next week.
"Once I've shaken off this injury I'm looking forward to doing what I do, scoring goals.
"That's what I want personally, but of course for the team, automatic promotion is vital, for the fans and the players. Then of course when we go up, it's all about staying up this time."
