To play 60 minutes of football after being out for seven months is very nice and it actually went better than what I thought it would.
There is another reserve game now on Tuesday and hopefully I will be involved again. It is not easy to think about your own plans but for me it would be a perfect target to be back in the squad againsrt West Ham.
I know the fans have stayed with me throughout this injury and for me, it would be a dream to come back in a home game. To run out again at White Hart Lane is what I look forward to.
I've trained for two weeks, every session and I've done some more work with the reserve on top of that, as well as my own running.
The last step is easy now because I am in training every day. I learned from the last time that I now have to be patient a litte, train every day, do a little more for myself and the rest will follow.
At the moment the team is very successful so I am happy to wait.
The team has started very well, seven points from three games is great, especially as we haven't had the best of starts to seasons since I've been at the club.
That is positive for me as well. Players who have had a long injury, to come back into a team that is successful means you don't have the intense pressure straight away that you have to win to come away from the relegation zone or something like that. Hopefully we can continue that start and I can't wait to get back!

I'm back! I played in a special practice match for the reserves on Wednesday, had no reaction and I'm very happy and positive.
