Liverpool goalkeeper Brad Jones is hoping to take advantage of his spell in the first team to earn a new contract with the Anfield club before the end of the season.
Jones has been thrown in at the deep end by manager Brendan Rodgers after the Northern Irish manager decided to drop Simon Mignolet.
As a result, he has played the last three games for the Reds, including ties with Arsenal, Manchester United and Bournemouth.
Jones is aware that his time at Liverpool could still be up in the near future, however, as his contract expires at the end of the current season.
It seemed as though he would be released at the end of the campaign prior to his latest run in the first team.
He has an opportunity to prove himself now, with Rodgers having told the press that his time in the side is set to run for an indefinite period.
He said: “I want to play as many games as I can and to be given the opportunity, I am happy to go out there and try and do my best and help the team.
“Every game is an opportunity. The manager hasn’t said anything.
“I’ll just play each game and hope that I do well enough to play the next one.
“I have tried to play as the manager wants me to do. I have just got to go on that.
“In football, and with goalkeepers, circumstances dictate how much you do and when you do it.
“Sometimes you might not have a chance to do anything. I just try and play as best as I can in every aspect.
“I have been playing that way since I signed my first contract [to try and win another one].
“Every game that I play, I will just go out and do my best. Do I want to stay? Of course I do.”
