Tottenham Hotspur striker Jermain Defoe is determined to force his way back into first-team contention, and plans to help fire Spurs back into the Champions League.
Hopes of a fourth placed finish in the Barclays Premier League this season are now over, after Harry Redknapp's side suffered defeat at Manchester City last week.
With it went hopes of a return to Europe's elite competition next campaign, with Roberto Mancini's side the beneficiaries of Tottenham's setback.
Looking ahead to Spurs' final day fixture against Birmingham City at White Hart Lane on Sunday, a victory will at least confirm the consolation prize of entry into the Europa League next term, and Defoe for one wants to end the season on a high.
"I want to help the club achieve things, win trophies and get in the Champions League," he said.
"I am ambitious. I want to play in every game and score goals, especially when you score goals for a fantastic club like Tottenham.
"I love the club and I still get the same buzz that I did when I first walked out at White Hart Lane, which is important."
Defoe has been frustrated at a lack of first team opportunities in recent weeks and months, but is remaining positive ahead of the end of season encounter.
"I truly believe that if I am playing games, I will score goals. I think my record shows that."
