David Stockdale is hoping that his loan spell at Hull City can put him in good stead to eventually take the number one shirt at Fulham.
The 27-year old has not featured for the Cottagers since February, due to the form of Mark Schwarzer, and he has been sent out on loan to the KC Stadium in a bid to play some first-team football.
Stockdale is hoping he can make an impression in his short stay with the Tigers.
"It's a terrific opportunity for me. I have been struggling to get games in the Premier League because we have been doing well at Fulham," he said in the Daily Mirror.
"They want me to stay and hopefully, take Mark's gloves when he has finished. If I do well here, you never know what could happen in the future."
Stockdale made his debut in Saturday's 1-0 defeat by Burnley and he admitted it took him a while to get into the game, saying: "You don't want to go into the game looking a little bit sloppy, but I felt a bit rusty in the first 10 minutes, especially when the first shot had a little swerve on it and hit me in the chest."
