Carle dismayed by lack of action

23 December 2009 12:30
The Australian midfielder has made just seven appearances for Crystal Palace this season, only one of which has been a start.

And Carle is desperate to be given further opportunities to impress as he pushes for a place in Pim Verbeek's World Cup squad.

"I want to be playing at my club as soon as possible and I'm trying to do everything right to make that happen," he told SBS. "My lack of matches this season obviously isn't anywhere near good enough and I'm obviously not happy about it.

"I've been working really hard on my fitness. I've been doing extra sessions, so that if I do get the chance I will make the most of it. I'm keeping my head down and I'm staying positive."

He added: "Hopefully I will get back in sooner rather than later because I know it's vital to be playing, especially with the World Cup so close now."
