Stock encouraged by match fitness

James O'Connor's late goal settled the tie at Griffin Park, where midfielder Stock was making his second appearance since returning from ankle surgery in September.

He lasted 78 minutes in Saturday's home win over Watford.

Stock said: "I surprised myself with how long I played. I've had two games in the past three days and I was perhaps a little worried about my fitness.

"But after the last two games, I feel quite confident that I could play 90 minutes. I think the manager was going to bring me off a little earlier, but I was able to finish the game."
