Steff suffered ligament damage on international duty in September, an injury that completed a wretched run of luck for the striker in terms of long-running injury sagas.
He came through an hour at Broadhall Way before making way for Yannick Kamanan.
"Not bad," said Steff afterwards when asked how he felt. "I was still a little bit afraid when I got the ball, a little bit afraid to get a tackle on it. It will come along, it felt alright running and everything felt good, jumping was alright.
"I was just a little bit afraid to go in full, but it will come good with more training.
"It's just a little mental thing, it's still there and I can still feel it all the time, it's not 100 per cent right.
"You get a little bit scared of getting a knock on it or something and are a bit more careful than you should be - but you have to be in the beginning."
Steff says his all round fitness will improve now he should be able to adopt a regular training pattern.
"I feel quite good actually. It is how I've been training recently, doing two days then having a day's rest and treatment, then training another.
"Hopefully now I can start training every day and it will be alright. The fitness, in terms of running and that is good. I just need to get the confidence back and trust the leg."
If any one player deserves and change of luck and a run of good fortune where injuries are concerned, it's Steff, but he chooses not to dwell on past misfortune.
"I know, I know. I have to forget that and carry on with what I'm doing. I know I'm going to get another injury at some time in my career so I just have to make the most of it when I'm fit."
The lads in the changing room after the game joked that overturning a 1-0 deficit was due to Steff being withdrawn. The striker took that jibe on the chin.
"I didn't see what happened after so I don't know," he smirked.
Steffen Iversen made his return from injury for the reserves against Fulham on Monday night and admitted to being slightly nervous of sustaining a bump on his repaired ankle.
