Portsmouth defender Ibrahima Sonko reckons it is only a matter of time before he reclaims his first-team place.
The 29-year-old has had to watch on from the sidelines for the last three games as Pompey have claimed seven points.
At the foundation of this success has been the granite defensive pairing of Ricardo Rocha and Aaron Mokoena.
But the Senegal defender is primed to break up that partnership, though he concedes that he may have to wait for his chance.
"Like every player, I want to play," said Sonko.
"But football is a team game and you have to wait your turn. Aaron and Ricardo are playing well so I can't complain.
"I've just got to keep working and when I get the chance to play, I have to do the right things so the gaffer knows that when he needs me I am ready.
"There are so many games so sooner or later I will get back on the pitch. Then it is up to me to make sure I stay on it.
"But at the moment I'm just enjoying the team winning."
