Boaz Myhill insists breaking into the West Brom first-team will not see him alter his approach.
The former Hull City man has been forced to bide his time since arriving at The Hawthorns over the summer.
England international and club captain Scott Carson has blocked his route to the side, with Roberto Di Matteo keen to field a settled starting XI.
Carson has, however, suffered a dip in form of late and the door has been opened to Myhill.
He has started the Baggies' last three fixtures, offering him an opportunity to impress, but is adamant that he will not be taking his place for granted after working so hard to get noticed.
"You just have to keep doing what you've been doing," Myhill said in the Express and Star.
"I can't change myself as a player, all I can do is what I have been doing ever since I've been here, do my work from Monday to Friday and I have just been given a platform now to show what I can do on a Saturday.
"It doesn't really change anything because I would hate to think people would say I'm trying harder now I'm in the team than I was before. That would be a bad reflection on me.
"I think I am always a reasonable trainer."
Myhill is delighted to be at the forefront of Di Matteo's thoughts at the moment, but claims he was thoroughly enjoying his time with West Brom even before he was thrust into action.
The Wales international said: "Ultimately everybody's goal is to get into the starting line-up at the beginning of the season.
"You want to play in every game but some people do it and some don't, so it's up to you as a player to make the most of the opportunities you are given.
"The fact that currently I've been given a chance, doesn't make it any more enjoyable, it's just that little bit of extra icing on the cake."
