Happy to be back

15 February 2013

Matt Hill is fit and raring to go after six weeks out with a broken jaw.

Hill, who has been sidelined since the FA Cup tie at Oxford United, has been an unused substitute in the last two away matches at Shrewsbury Town and Bury.

The experienced defender appreciates he faces a challenge to regain his place in the starting line-up, but he is just happy to be available again.

He commented: "The doctor said the full healing process was six weeks, so come Saturday I am officially ready to go.

"At Shrewsbury I was a bit more excitable than normal, simply because after such an injury you are just delighted to be back in contention.

"The last two results have been fantastic and it is pleasing to see us moving in the right direction again.

"All the lads are desperate to play and obviously we are pleased to have banished the memories of a disappointing January.

"Winning is a habit and it is so much better to come into the dressing room after a game when you have put another win on the board.

"I would like to think we are close to hitting top form again, the lads have responded to what the management team asked of them and the results are the proof in the pudding."
