Tyrone Barnett feels that he can add a new dimension to Bristol City's attack during the second half of the League One campaign.
Signed on loan from Peterborough until the end of the season, the 28-year-old forward will go straight into the squad for Saturday's clash against Bradford at Valley Parade.
Not only will he provide competition for established strikers Sam Baldock and Jay Emmanuel-Thomas, who have netted 30 goals between them already this term, he will also complement them.
A natural target-man whose game is based on holding the ball up, bringing others into play and providing an aerial threat, Barnett believes he offers the team something different.
He said: "My game is all about occupying the centre-halves and winning headers, which is something Bristol City have not really had this season.
"I've seen what Jay and Sam have done this season and they are a good partnership. But I'm different from both of them and I feel I can come in and help them.
"Obviously, I have to work my way into the team first, but I don't see why all three of us cannot play in the same side and cause defences problems in League One."
Barnett has exchanged a play-off push for a relegation battle, yet insists he did not think twice about joining the Robins when the opportunity arose.
He added: "I didn't think about the league position, to be honest, and City being down the bottom didn't influence me. I just saw a chance to play for a big club and that is all that really mattered to me.
"There is no way that Bristol City will stay where they are in the table and it is just a matter of how high they can climb when they go on a winning run."
Barnett met City boss Steve Cotterill for the first time this week and was immediately impressed by the 49-year-old.
He said: "I've never had any dealings with him before, but I found him to be really enthusiastic. He has a good reputation as a man manager and a motivator and that was something that attracted me to the club straight away."
Signed from Crawley for £1.2million in the summer of 2012, Barnett was awarded a four-year contract at Peterborough.
However, he has since made just 33 starts and, despite starting this season well and scoring seven goals, he has fallen by the wayside recently.
Without a goal since October and out of favour with manager Darren Ferguson, he sees joining City as something of a new start. Asked if his loan move to Ashton Gate could lead to a permanent deal in the future, he did not rule out the possibility.
In the short-term, his aim is to play football and return to goal-scoring form.
He said: "I started the season well, but have not featured so much during the last month-and-a-half. I don't really want to talk too much about Peterborough – I want to focus on a new start with Bristol City.
"I'm fit and ready to play if called upon and my aim is to get some games under my belt and score some goals if I can.
"I think perhaps I need a new challenge and I'm looking forward to helping Bristol City climb the table."
