Manchester United goalkeeper Tomasz Kuszczak hopes to have impressed manager Sir Alex Ferguson sufficiently to earn another first-team start at the weekend.

The Poland international has been unable to dislodge 38-year-old Edwin van der Sar as United's No.1, and Ben Foster will also provide stiff competition having completed his recovery from injury.

Kuszczak was, however, named in Ferguson's first XI in the comfortable victory over West Ham on Wednesday night and he is hoping for another opportunity against Hull at Old Trafford on Saturday.

"It was a big day for me (against West Ham) because I have not played for a few weeks," said Kuszczak.

"I hope I get another chance soon. Saturday? Why not?"

Kuszczak was pleased with his performance on Wednesday, despite spending the majority of the game as a bystander.

"It is not easy when you have nothing to do," Kuszczak added. "But that is how it is for a goalkeeper. You have to try hard to keep your concentration for 90 minutes.

"You need to do your job properly and keep a clean sheet. This is most important thing for a goalkeeper and of course very important for the team as well."
