Tomkins impressed in their Carling Cup defeat of Sunderland.
He told WHUTV: "It would be nice to keep my place. You never know. There have been changes in the team but all you can do is do your best when you get in. The manager will do what he thinks is best. Hopefully we can win because is a massive game for the fans and us as well with our league position. Every game is big for us."
