Tonge doesn't make the squad for an away game, he reports to the club for training on the match day instead.
He told The Sentinel: "Maybe there will be a stage of the season where I need games and the manager will look to loan me out. But at the moment I am happy staying here, working hard and trying to get into the team.
"If I can't do that then I want to push the lads in the team hard to bring up their performance levels. You can be out of the side for a while and then thrown in.
"I am not on my own, there are other lads who want to play as well. It is about the squad and we have a really good spirit.
"That has been shown in our last couple of league games where we have come from behind to get points."
