Collison aiming to get one over West Ham pal Noble in U21 showdown

Wales U21 star Jack Collison hopes to get one over West Ham teammate Mark Noble in tonight's European Championship playoff against England.

Collison, 20, sees the more experienced Noble as one of the main obstacles to his progress into the Hammers' first-team. And the Ninian Park clash on Friday gives him the chance to make a point to his club-mate.

Collison said: "I am looking forward to playing against Mark, we get on well and there has been plenty of banter between us since the draw paired Wales with England.

"One day I would want to be playing alongside Mark in the same midfield, so this is my chance to show how well I can compete against him."
