Keeper Boaz Myhill has warned Ben Foster that he faces a fight to secure his place back in the West Brom first team this season.
The 30-year-old Myhill has been handed an opportunity to shine in the Baggies past two Premier League matches, which Steve Clarke's men have won 2-1 against Wigan and more impressively Chelsea respectively with Foster currently out because of a groin problem.
And, it was Myhill's performance against the European champions at the Hawthorns on Saturday which will have served as a warning to Foster that he is unlikely to walk straight back into the starting XI when he is fit.
The Wales international, who revealed that Foster sent him a congratulatory text message following the Chelsea match, insisted the goalkeepers have a good relationship at the Hawthorns but he is determined to keep the number one jersey.
Myhill told the club's website: "We get on very well, as I do with Luke Daniels and our coach Dean Kiely.
"We have a good set of keepers so it's a joy to come into work. The sessions are bubbly and we have a good camaraderie.
"Everyone wants to play but you have to earn the right to get into the team."
He added: "After being away [on loan at Birmingham last season] and coming back, you realise the Premier League is the best in the world.
"You get to play in fantastic stadia, in front of brilliant fans, and if you want to stay in the team you have to train hard every day and impress the gaffer."
