Graham Dorrans says he is the man to fill the void left by injury-hit Zoltan Gera, who will miss the rest of the season.
West Brom boss Roy Hodgson picked Dorrans to start alongside Shane Long in Saturday's 1-1 draw with QPR - the Scotland international's first start for a month.
And he is hoping he did enough in his 78 minutes on the pitch to cement a first-team spot.
He told the club's official website: "It was a tough game, obviously going one down in the first half wasn't ideal.
"But we came out and battled in the second half and managed to get back into it.
"I didn't feel as if I got on the ball as much as I would like but at the end of the day, as a team, we managed to earn a point.
"Hopefully I can fill the gap that Zoltan has left.
"We've got some good games coming up (Wigan and Blackburn) that it would be good to get involved in and if I can get a run in the team, which I think I need, then hopefully I'll get back to the level I know I can play at.
"Hopefully the goals will come but at the moment I just need to get myself some game time.
"I've not played in a good run of games for a long time - first and foremost what I'm looking for is a good run of games and a chance to improve my match fitness.
"Hopefully I've done enough to stay in the side but only the gaffer knows the answer to that question.
"Yesterday was a good away point with games coming up that we feel we can take points from.
"Hopefully we can get a win, go on a run and start climbing up the table. We need to be looking in front of us and not behind us."
