Liverpool goalkeeper Danny Ward hopes keeping up his good form with Aberdeen will be enough to help him break into Jurgen Klopp's team in the future.
The Welsh international has impressed during his loan spell at Pittodrie this season and will look to help Derek McInnes' side to another positive result at Dundee on Saturday.
Ward goes into the match inspired by a conversation with Liverpool manager Klopp last month.
Aberdeen have two wins and a draw from their last three games after six games without a victory and have moved back into second position in the table.
Ward said: "I had a conversation with him [Klopp]. I spent two days down at Melwood after the last international break and it was all good, all positive.
"He just told me to carry on what I'm doing. There's no guarantee of anything for any player and my aim is just to keep doing well.
"Hopefully that will impress the manager. I'm contracted to Liverpool so obviously I want to go back in and challenge for the number one shirt at some point in the future.
"At the moment, I'm fully concentrating on doing well up here. Seven points from the last nine is a good return at any level.
"Hopefully we can kick on and try to emulate the form we had at the start of the season now."
Aberdeen's recent dip was somewhat bizarre given it came immediately after a record-breaking eight-match winning start to the league campaign.

Defender Graeme Shinnie knows it was a curious turn for the worse but he is optimistic of keeping the recovery going at Dens Park live on Sky Sports 1 HD.
He added: "We weren't doing well. We know in ourselves that performances in certain games weren't great.
"But if you're in a crisis and you're still up at the top of the league, you're happy. That's what we always said to each other in the dressing room.
"We're still in a strong position and we've come out of it with three good results behind us."
