Striker Courtney Duffus was delighted to return to the side following a lengthy illness on Tuesday night against Newcastle United.
The former Everton youngster came on as a second half substitute after missing the last two months with a form of pleurisy.
Speaking about his return, Duffus said: “I feel a lot better than I did. It’s still going to take a long time to get back to full fitness but I’ve got to knuckle down and get on with it now.
“The worst part about it was not coming out to train and doing what you love but it was scary at first. I’m over it now but I’ve got to knuckle down and get going again.
“It felt good to be back out there in front of the home fans and the players on Tuesday night and hopefully I can kick on now.”
Duffus faces some tough competition to regain his place in the starting 11 following the form of Craig Davies and Eoin Doyle but is thankful to be back challenging.
“We have picked up some good results and the lads up front have done really well so it’s good to have competition and I’m going to relish the challenge,” he commented.
“I just want games to come quick and fast so I get an opportunity to play. I’m trying to get my fitness back and I’m enjoying every minute of being back out there.”
