Gerhard Tremmel is relishing the opportunity to impress for Swansea following Michel Vorm's injury in his side's defeat against Manchester City.
Tremmel came on for the remaining 30 minutes of Saturday's game to replace Vorm, who is facing up to six weeks on the sidelines after sustaining a groin injury trying to keep out Carlos Tevez' winning goal.
And with the German keeper expected to continue in Vorm's absence, the 33-year-old is hoping to prove his worth as the Swans take on Liverpool in the Capital One Cup followed by a home clash with Chelsea.
"It will be an interesting few weeks ahead," said Tremmel.
"We have Liverpool on Wednesday and Chelsea next Saturday. That's why I came here to Swansea. Obviously, Michel played very well last season, as did the whole team.
"You don't get many chances, but I have been training hard and I want to prove to the manager that I can come in and play.
"Now I have a chance, because of an injury, and hopefully I can get a few games.
"I hope Michel gets well very soon - it's obviously a bad feeling when you come on because of an injury.
"Luckily I didn't have much to do when I came on, because the team played so well.
"I think we deserved at least a point because in the second half, especially, we created some good chances. "
