Kasey Keller insists he hasn't joined Fulham to sit in the stands.
The former USA international goalkeeper told fulhamfc.com : "I see myself challenging Antti (Niemi) and Tony (Warner) for everything they have.
"I told Lawrie before signing that I am used to playing and I will do everything I can to make sure I’m on the field. Unfortunately with the position of goalkeeper there is only one of you on the field. You don’t want to ever wish ill for your team so that you can get a chance, but at the same time I want to play.
"I didn’t come here just to be happy to train so I’m going to do whatever I can to prove that I’m the guy who should be chosen in goal. But, at the same time if it doesn’t work out, or if I have to be patient and wait for my opportunity then I will be extremely supportive of the team and do whatever it takes to help pick up points."
