West Brom's Boaz Myhill doesn't expect to usurp Ben Foster as the club's first-choice keeper, despite impressing at Wigan.
Myhill put in a fantastic performance at the DW Stadium last weekend in the absence of the injured Foster as the Baggies secured a 2-1 win at Wigan.
Foster is recovering from minor groin surgery and is expected to miss the visit of Chelsea on Saturday, although he has not yet been completely ruled out of the tough fixture against the Londoners.
Myhill is confident he can continue to impress if handed a starting spot against Chelsea this weekend, but the Welshman doesn't think he'll be able to do anything to keep Foster out of the side regardless of how he performs against the Blues.
"I prepared all last week knowing I would have a chance to play in the game at the weekend," Myhill told the club's official website. "The manager said 'enjoy it' and we all did. You can tell by the way we all played that everyone was in it together and it was a great team performance.
"When I am needed, hopefully I can step in and do well, as I did on Saturday, but, at the risk of sounding like I don't want to play, Ben has been a top performer at this club for 18 months and, if I was him, I would expect it to take a lot more than this to get someone who has played as well as that out of the side."
