West Ham boss Allardyce: Tomkins chance will come

West Ham United boss Sam Allardyce insists James Tomkins' chance will come.

Hammer of the Year runner-up James Tomkins is still pushing for his first Premier League start in defence.

Allardyce told "We have terrific strength in depth in defence and it can leave Tonks frustrated, but he will get an opportunity when the time is right.

"James [Collins] is away with Wales and Tonks will continue to work hard in his absence. You saw how good a player he is when he came on against Fulham against good forwards like Dimitar Berbatov."
