Portsmouth boss marks completingÂ recruitment withÂ squad challenge
Kenny JackettÂ saluted his Pompey squad and told fans: Now we have to make you believe.
The Wolves striker becomes the Blues' 10thÂ player through the door and takes the last place inÂ a 25-man first-team squad.
Jackett likes the look of the depth and power of his options, but knows it's now time for his men to walk the walk.
He said:Â '˜We want that to be the case (the signings will make the difference).
'˜If you look across our front line, we have no injuries and you can't guarantee that will be the case all the way through the season, but I do feel we have some depth, cover and some competition. Also in our forward line we also have some real pace.
'˜We needed to be thicker on numbers than last season. It's a balancing act to work with the players you have but also improve.
'˜Squad planning through the summer is so vital. If you don't do it well you're fighting fires during the season.
'˜You work on team spirit and squad planning through the summer months, and hopefully they look after you through the winter.
'˜We'll see when the season develops, but we're pleased with the business we've done.
'˜Now it's up to us and myself most importantly to get our heads down, earn it, prove it and work at it.
'˜That's what we have to do. It won't just happen. We'll have to work at it. We have a strong squad, some good team spirit and competition.
'˜It's up to us to now to work, earn and make everyone believe we can have a successful season.'
Jackett admittedÂ he didn't anticipate making as many signings as he has, but addingÂ competition was necessary.
He added:Â '˜Maybe I didn't (think there'd be so many signings). But as we've gone along we've been able to distribute our budget to maybe have a few more than last year. I felt we needed that, even in terms of competition and the standard of training. It's a big thing.
'˜The higher the level of training, the higher the standards go and the more compeition there is.
'˜We're pleased we've been able to distribute the budget.
'˜Sometimes we've had to wait for one or two, but after that the proof will be in the pudding in terms of performances for the season.
'˜There's been some promise at the start, no more than that, but it's a big challenge. It's up to us now the window's shut to do the job for Portsmouth.'
