Defender Danny Shittu has said he feels good and he’s focused on a return to first team action having now over come his achilles problem.

The 34 year old picked up the problem back in March in our victory over Derby County, and went on to miss the rest of last season and this season so far, but he has been working hard on getting his fitness back and having played and skippered the U21 side in their game over Colchester United, playing all 120 minutes in the process, the experienced defender told the official site that he feels ready for regular action now and he’s hoping to work his way quickly into manager Ian Holloway’s first team plans.

‘My aim is to get in the first team. It’s been slow and hard with my achilles injury and getting it right. The gaffer has been worried about me coming back too early and doing it again after what happened against Derby. I’ve been working hard, not just outside but in the gym as well to get the achilles right. I’m feeling good and all I can do is be ready for when the gaffer calls me now.’

With Wolverhampton Wanderers and former manager Kenny Jackett up next, in what will be his first return to The Den since leaving us back in May 2013, Shittu said the time for reunions and kind words will be after the game but for the game itself the focus of all the players will be on making his return and unhappy one.

‘What Kenny did here is amazing, Kenny and Joe Gallen will deserve the applause they get but we will be looking to hopefully try and get them to go away without any points.’
