Notts County midfielder Jeff Hughes should be playing for Northern Ireland again, according to boss Martin Allen.

Allen told BBC Radio Nottingham: "He does his work so is armed mentally and technically for those situations.

"He's a good bloke off the field, good player. I'm sure it's only a matter of time before he's playing for Northern Ireland again."

Hughes, 26, scored a penalty in the 1-1 draw with Brentford at the weekend and has been capped twice.
