Watford goalkeeper Richard Lee is hoping for a run in the Hornets first team after his starring role in the 3-0 weekend win at Southampton.
The 26-year-old, who is in the final year of his contract with Watford, saved two first-half penalties at St Mary's, having stepped in in the absence of shoulder injury victim Mart Poom.
Lee told The Daily Mirror: "This chance came out of the blue and I had to make the most of it.
"Hopefully I'll now get a run in the team. It's been a bit of a stop-start season, and it's a big season for me, because I'm in the last year of my contract.
"This is a tough place to come, so it is very pleasing to win as comfortably as we did.
"I've never saved two penalties in a game before, apart from a shoot-out. I don't think I've ever faced two in a game before."
