The former Fulham ace made his Tigers comeback in their 2-1 reserves' loss to Bolton on Tuesday night.

Bullard got his name on the scoresheet with a well-taken shot from just outside the area and he admitted it was the icing on the cake.

The 30-year-old has spent the best part of the year on the sidelines with a knee injury and he has conceded that being out of action was a struggle.

Bullard is hoping to get another reserves outing under his belt and is targeting a first-team return against the Cottagers on 19th October.

Enjoyment"I loved every minute of it, just to be out there kicking a ball again," he told Sky Sports News.

"As soon as I knew that I had a reserve game coming up I couldn't wait to get out there. The last two months have been a nightmare.

"I've been out for seven months now so I felt (fatigue) a little bit. I feel good now. I couldn't believe it (the goal) when it went in. It felt good.

"I've been out a long time now and I just want to enjoy my football and get back to playing.

"I'm hoping to get a couple more minutes under my belt and try to be involved against my former team."
