Ferrie Bodde says he's feeling better this time around as he looks to recover from a knee ligament injury.
The Dutch midfielder suffered the serious injury in November 2008 and he made a full recovery in August 2009, but he picked up the same injury again in his first League game which has kept him sidelined ever since.
The 27 year-old was back in action on Tuesday, playing 59 minutes for the Reserves, and scoring in the 2-1 victory against Bristol City.
Bodde is getting closer and closer to returning to action, and he says he feels stronger this time around.
'I have done a lot of work in Holland and I feel better this time — I am really pleased with how things went in the game.
'You have to get used playing football again, but there was no pain and that's important.
'You can get through training at 50 per cent, but in games you must always be 100 per cent focused and that's the way I was.
'Now I will carry on training hard and get some more minutes in the reserves and maybe in the first team. We will take it day by day and week by week, because there's no need to rush anything.'
Bodde also explained to the Evening Post that it was a nice feeling to be back involved with the team, but himself and the fans must be patient as we await his return to League football.
'It was nice to be back around the team and getting the smell of a matchday,'
'But I don't think I was really going to play a part. You never know, if I had been needed for 10 minutes or something, then I could have played.
'But Tuesday was about me getting involved again, and it is not easy for me to say when I will be ready to play for the first team again.
'I will speak to the gaffer over the next couple of days, but the fans need to be patient just like I need to be patient.
'When I come back is a big question for me, but at the moment I'm just happy that things went well for the reserves.'
