Dortmund - Despite the inevitable murmurings of a changing of the guard between the Borussia Dortmund goalposts, Australian international shotstopper is refusing to get carried away.

The 26-year-old started ahead of for the second game on the spin in Tuesday's Group D-topping 1-1 draw with RSC Anderlecht in the UEFA Champions League, but as he explained in an exclusive post-match interview with bundesliga.com, he still classes his German counterpart as BVB's first-choice custodian...

bundesliga.com: Mitch Langerak, what did you make of the game?

Mitch Langerak: Obviously it would have been better to win the game and keep things at 1-0, but unfortunately they scored the equaliser. It's a little disappointing, but our job here today was to come first in the group. We've achieved that, so we're quite happy.

bundesliga.com: How surprising was it for you that the coach decided to make a change in goal?

Langerak: On Friday in the Bundesliga [against TSG 1899 Hoffenheim], we changed things up just for the game and also for tonight. I'm not sure how things are going to go in the future. I'm not too sure, but all I can do is to keep training and working, and when I get the chance to play take it with two hands.

bundesliga.com: How confident are you that things will stay as they are? Perhaps you're the new No1 at Dortmund…

Langerak: Well I wouldn't say that until I play 40 or 50 games in a row, then I'd consider myself the new No1. Until then, Roman's the number 1 and I just have to keep training. If I get the chance to play at the weekend then great, but obviously I've not spoken to the head coach about that, so I'm not too sure.

bundesliga.com: What's your relationship like with Roman now? Do you communicate well?

Langerak: Yeah, of course. Roman and I have known each other for four or five years and we've always been good friends on and off the pitch and that continues to be the case. We've spoken in the last couple of days and he's wished me well. He's a good guy and we get on really well.

bundesliga.com: How important is the Berlin game at the weekend?

Langerak: For us, in the Bundesliga we need to continue to collect points. We haven't had the best season so far in the Bundesliga, so points on the road would be important. Against Hertha, I think we need to definitely get the three points to haul ourselves a little bit further up the table.

bundesliga.com: How's the atmosphere right now?

Langerak: Following Friday's game that we won and obviously tonight, I think we're all very happy that we've put two games together. Hopefully we can build some momentum pushing forward, but they're difficult games up until the Christmas break. It's important that we continue to play well and pick up points.

bundesliga.com: Do you feel for Roman now?

Langerak: Of course I know how it is when you're on the bench, but like I said I'm not too sure if it's going to continue or how things are going to go. Maybe Roman plays this weekend, maybe I play. We'll see how we go.
