He returned to action in a reserve game against Portsmouth in December, but had not played for 90 minutes until Wednesday's 2-2 draw against Stoke at the Britannia Stadium."It has been a long time since I've played 90 minutes and now I feel better knowing that I can play a whole game," he added."The plan against Portsmouth reserves was to play an hour but we decided with the small injury that I should go off because of the risk in continuing the game. But I am happy now, I played 45 minutes of that game which was good for my confidence."I feel very well and I'm training hard every day. Of course I want to come back quick and strong. Now, every game for me is a big step."I am happy with the 90 minutes on a very hard pitch with all the hard rain. I needed time in the reserves to get my match fitness back."But playing my first game for the first team, I am ready now and I am just waiting for my chance."
