Liverpool midfielder Allen determined to fight his way back into Rodgers' plans

Liverpool midfielder Joe Allen is prepared to fight his way back into manager Brendan Rodgers' first team.

Allen is back in the Wales squad for their international friendly against Finland on Saturday. And he'll return to Merseyside with hard work on the agenda.

The 23-year-old told "I'm working hard and waiting patiently for my chance, but Liverpool is a massive club and we are having a great season.

"The competition for places is really good and you want that at a top club, and I have to work as hard as I can to get back into the fold.

"You want to see your team doing well, especially when you are out injured - the lift you get is from seeing your team doing well.

"Hopefully with the momentum we are gaining now we can keep going and in an ideal world I would like to be a big part of that."
