The Dutch shot-stopper came in for the injured Enckelman for last weekend's win over Middlesbrough for just his third appearance for the club and helped keep a clean sheet.
The summer signing from De Graafschap admitted he would be very disappointed to lose his place to Enckelman when he recovers from injury, considering his performance against Middlesbrough.
"I haven't come here to be the No.2," said Postma. "I want to keep the shirt and I'm determined to do that.
"I will be very disappointed if the manager puts Peter back in."
More competition at Villa for Postma could come in the form of Boaz Myhill, who has returned to the Midlands following the end of his loan spell at Bradford.
Meanwhile, out-of-favour Villa defender Alpay has been linked with a possible move to Premiership rivals Blackburn.
Blackburn boss Graeme Souness is keen to bolster his defence and is thought to be weighing up a £2 million bid for the Turkish international.
