Collison chasing more West Ham first team action

West Ham United midfielder Jack Collison is waiting for his chance to crack the first team again.

He told WHUTV: "I am really trying to do my best to force my way in. It is hard because the boys are performing really well - especially Hayden [Mullins] and Nobes (Mark Noble) in midfield, they have been superb. I have just got to wait my chance and keep doing what I am doing."

Collison, who made his senior debut on New Year's Day at Arsenal, had little time to prepare but he was grateful to be given the experience by Alan Curbishley.

"It is very good to be in and around it," he added. "Nobes pulled out with a tight hamstring and I found out I was on the bench maybe 15 minutes before the game. I was absolutely buzzing and just hoping to get on the pitch, but unfortunately I didn't."
