Simon Cox insists he is ready to force his way into West Brom's starting line-up.
The Baggies have made an excellent start to the season and currently sit sixth in the Premier League.
Because of West Brom's excellent form Cox has been limited to starts in the League Cup, but he has shown up well with three goals in their last two Carling Cup matches.
And Cox says he is ready to prove himself in the top-flight.
"I am 100 times better than when I joined Albion," said Cox.
"When I first came to West Brom I was a young lad who didn't really know a lot and had just played a few games.
"I'd had a good season but it was a League One season and I had to prove to the lads who had just come down from the Premier League that I could mix it with the big boys.
"I am now in the Premier League and if you asked a few of them they would say they have seen vast improvements in my game.
"But I can't argue. The lads are flying at the moment and there is a real aura around the club.
"We feel like we're unbeatable and I can't argue with it.
"When I came to the club I knew it wasn't a club where I was going to start every game.
"I had to prove myself in the Championship. I was a League One player. We ended up having a really good season and getting promoted to the Premier League, so two seasons on I'm a Premier League player.
"It's a situation where I have to prove to the manager I can do a job if he does play me.
"If you start the game and do well and score it can only do you good and you try to make sure the manager has a headache for the Saturday games."
Meanwhile, The Baggies are set to be boosted by the return of Marc-Antoine Fortune and Jonas Olsson.
Fortune and Olsson both had to be substituted early in the second half of last weekend's win over Fulham with ankle and Achilles tendon problems respectively.
But the duo will be back in action sooner rather than later and could even be in contention for Monday's clash at Blackpool.
