Boaz Myhill has no problem playing second fiddle to West Bromwich Albion captain Scott Carson.
Former Hull City No1 Myhill is ready if called into action.
â€śAll I do is come to work and prepare as best as I can,â€ť the California-born shot-stopper, who turns 28 next month, told the Sunday Mercury.
â€śI donâ€™t know how a game will go or where Iâ€™ll be needed.
â€śI enjoy being here and the good thing about the Carling Cup is that I should be on the pitch.
â€śEveryone wants to play but I was made aware that I wouldnâ€™t play straight away.
â€śFor me this is a challenge and one Iâ€™m tackling. Dean (Kiely) and Scott are great, Deanoâ€™s sessions are very enjoyable and I have a good, healthy rivalry with Scott.
â€śItâ€™s good for me and the only thing missing is playing the in the league â€“ but the manager knows I am here as an option."
