Mick McCarthy's side have shown glimpses of their potential by deservedly sharing the spoils with Everton, Aston Villa and Stoke.[LNB]Now they will face another test of their resolve against on-song Arsenal who demolished AZ Alkmaar in the Champions League on Wednesday night.[LNB]Kightly said: "Villa and Everton, for instance, are big sides who finished in the top six last season and we drew with them.[LNB]"You need to win games, we need to start getting three points, but we can build on the confidence from those games and being unbeaten in three matches.[LNB]"Everyone knows the Premier League is full of quality players but we have got a good set of lads here and a good staff and a good manager and we feel we can compete.[LNB]"Also, when we're the underdogs, it suits us and I think we can surprise a few people."[LNB]Kightly is happy to be back playing after injury problems and looking to make his mark in the top flight.[LNB]He said: "When you are not playing, it is terrible and so frustrating. I had played in 40-odd games last season to get into the Premier League.[LNB]"Then, once you are there, you find you can't taste what it is like, what it is all about, which was a really big blow for myself.[LNB]"It was really tough but I am pleased to be back and, the more minutes and games I play, I am sure the stronger and better I'll get."[LNB][LNB]
