Diomansy Kamara hopes to hold down a regular place in the Fulham side after notching against Arsenal.
The Senegalese striker hauled the Cottagers level at Emirates Stadium on Saturday, before suffering a 2-1 defeat.
That effort was his second in just four starts this term and he drew high praise from boss Mark Hughes after the game.
Kamara is pleased to have caught the eye on his latest outing, with opportunities having been few and far between of late.
The 30-year-old hopes he has done enough to retain a spot in Hughes' starting XI, but is aware that fellow frontmen Andy Johnson and Moussa Dembele are both closing in on full fitness.
He said in the Fulham and Hammersmith Chronicle: "There's a lot of competition but some strikers are injured at the moment, so it's nice for me to start and get on the scoresheet.
"I've been working hard. We've got a lot of strikers, AJ is back, but I played well and scored."
