Jones sends out a warning to his rival between the sticks.

After a string of bad performances Liverpool manager Brendan Rodgers finally dropped goalkeeper Simon Mignolet against Manchester United in favour of backup Brad Jones.

Jones has since started the past three games for the Reds – Premier League clashes against the Red Devils and Arsenal and the Capital One Cup victory over Bournemouth – although the club are constantly being linked with new stoppers.

Many believe neither Jones or Mignolet is good enough to claim the No.1 jersey at Anfield, but the former is happy to have it currently and is looking to fight to hold onto the position.

“I want to play as many games as I can and to be given the ­opportunity,” the Australian was quoted by the Mirror.

“I am happy to go out there and try and do my best and help the team. Indefinite means no ­timescale. It’s just up to me to go out and do my best and hold on to it for as long as I can.

“We will get linked with another 20 goalkeepers now, but I won’t let it affect me.

“As long as it continues, great. If it’s a couple of weeks, a couple of months, we will see. I just have to make the most of it.”

Since joining the Merseysiders from Middlesbrough back in the summer of 2010 Jones has managed to make just 26 appearances in all competitions and is clearly keen to maintain his run in the starting XI.
