Leon Haslam says he only has eyes on rostrum results at Portimao this weekend after a succession of near misses on the Aprilia Red Devils machine.

The Ealing-born racer has confirmed he's almost at full fitness after his huge crash at Imola last month and is raring to go in Portugal.

Haslam will look to end a run of five consecutive fourth place finishes, punctuated by his crash in race two in Italy, and return the Aprilia RSV4 RF to the podium.

"I can't wait for Portugal. The ribs are still a little sore but so much better than Donington, also this is a track where we managed a few laps preseason testing and the feeling was really good," Haslam said. "I have been 4th in the last few races and I really feel we can get back on the podium in Portugal.

"It's a very demanding circuit where Aprilia has won in the past, so this gives a lot of confidence going into the weekend."

Haslam sits second in the World Superbike championship and holds a one-point advantage over Kawasaki rider Tom Sykes in third heading to Portimao.

The Algarve International Circuit is set to host the seventh round of the 2015 World Superbike championship, scheduled for the 5-7 June.
