Wright had been off the radar since the Carling Cup defeat at Peterborough in August and had been training with the club's academy squad.
However, he made his comeback at the weekend in the 1-1 draw against Swansea and is now targeting a prolonged run in the side.
"The manager dropped me and it has been tough," Wright told the Evening Star. "Like every other professional I want to play. But I kept my head down as hard as it has been.
"It was disheartening to train with academy staff Bryan Klug and Chris Kiwomya, and very hard to take.
"I was looking to do the right things and to take any opportunity that came my way in the reserves, for example, to impress the gaffer.
"And last Friday when we came to practise set-pieces I guessed I was back into the team."
