Despite his lack of game time – he has started only 3 games all season – Gayle is determined to push his way back into the side.
“I just need to keep working hard and prove to the gaffer that I can be in the starting 11.” said the Englishman.
“We had a bad result before the international break so it’s given us chance to work on a few things we needed to and then hopefully we carry that into the game at the weekend.
“When you don’t get the result or performance you want you prefer to get back out there as soon as you can and get it out of your system. But that will mean we’re all raring to go at the weekend.”
