West Ham United midfielder Jack Collison is delighted to be back in action.

The Welsh international played 36 minutes in defeat at Reading and Ricardo Vaz Te also returned after a lengthy lay-off to provide manager Sam Allardyce with a boost.

"It is all about getting games under my belt now and just concentrating on getting fitter and fitter," Collison told the club's official website. "Obviously for me personally this season was not what I wanted, with the injury, but full credit to the boys, who have been fantastic. What we want to do now is kick on and enjoy an equally good second half of the season."
