LOAN signing Pawel Abbott is determined to help fire Town towards promotion.
The 21-year-old Preston North End striker trained with Peter Jackson's squad for the first time yesterday and is hoping to make a debut against Bristol Rovers at the Memorial Ground tonight (7.45).
"I just want to play well and score some goals," said Abbott, who is added to an injury-free squad from Saturday's 1-0 win at Torquay which moved Town up to sixth in the table.
"Obviously I want to play as many games as I can and if I can play a role in helping the club go for promotion then great."
Abbott has just returned from Poland, where he needed to gain exemption from national service, and his first impressions of Town in their south-west training camp are encouraging.
"I've been very impressed with the manager and the lads and everyone is full of confidence for tonight's game," said the Polish Under 21 international.
"I knew Jon Newby from my three-month loan with Bury last season and the rest of the lads have been really friendly in helping me settle in, so I'm looking forward to playing and to concentrating on my football now the national service thing is done and dusted."
Abbott, who learned most from playing alongside Jon Macken (now Man City) and Brian McBride (Fulham) is out of contract in the summer and open to offers.
"I first knew of Town's interest about a week ago through my agent and it was convenient when I played against them in the Reserves," he said.
"I was delighted when Peter wanted to take me on loan, because I haven't been getting many first-team opportunities, and if the chance comes to talk about a permanent move then obviously I'll look at it.
"At the moment, though, I just want to get involved and do my best to help the club."
Jackson is keeping his team plans under wraps against a Rovers side keen to bounce back from a 3-0 home drubbing by Darlington in which striker Paul Tait was injured. They are likely to play Lewis Haldane alongside Junior Agogo tonight.
"All we need to do is battle like we did at Torquay and I'll be very confident of winning the game," said Jackson.
"We've had a good training camp, the result on Saturday has lifted everyone and we will approach tonight's game, which won't be easy, in exactly the same way - positively and looking to take the three points."
