Kelly insists he's ready to grab his chance with both hands following a serious knee injury to team-mate Zdenek Grygera.
He said: "The Europa League has given me the chance to play and put myself in the window to show what I can do.
"Hopefully that will continue on to the Premier League. The games I've played, against Manchester City and Blackburn, I felt they were two of our best performances, so to be able to perform at that level is great.
"Any game I'm getting I'm just trying to show what I'm capable of doing."
