Swansea City striker Luke Moore has admitted that he is frustrated at not playing regularly for the Welsh club this season.
The 25-year-old has made only four appearances for the Swans in the Premier League in 2011/12, all from the substitutes' bench.
Moore is unlikely to start against his old club Aston Villa at the Liberty Stadium in the Premier League on Sunday, but he accepts his manager Brendan Rodgers' decision.
"Of course there is a frustration, it's natural," he conceded. "A lot of people think it's an easy job but it is hard sitting on bench, it can get you down.
"But you have to keep your head up and keep pushing, work hard every day in training, keep in best shape possible and wait to get your chance.
"The manager knows what I can do. I do well every day, and I trust the manager.
"The manager talks to me, I know the manager has faith in me and appreciates my qualities but if someone is doing well in your position there is nothing you can do other than work hard."
Swansea will head into their match against Villa in 13th place in the league with 13 points from 12 matches.
