Midfielder Dean Parrett has admitted that being out injured was a frustrating time for him, but he’s been delighted with his run of form since returning to fitness and first team duties.

Speaking to the Official Site the player admitted that having joined us back in October 2013 he did endure a difficult first season at the club and it ended in the worst possible fashion as he was stretchered off the pitch in the game against MK Dons with an ACL injury.

However, since coming back into the side for the last five games, few would argue this is his best run of form yet.

‘It’s been really good. I was on the sideline for about six games and obviously it’s not nice watching from the bench but I’ve had to wait for my chance and do my best when I got back in. You have to keep performing to keep your shirt, the gaffer picks you on merit so you have to work hard in training and perform of a Saturday.’

Parrett admits the injury hit him hard and knocked him back hugely, so he’s really had to work hard to get back to fitness, and despite his run of games earlier in the season he feels it was too soon for him really, so he wasn’t at his best, but now he knows and feels he’s a lot fitter and a lot stronger and it’s ‘starting to show’ on the pitch.

Following relegation and a huge turnover in players, Parrett says that confidence is now at an all time high, and with struggles at the beginning of the season, as player tried to gel, that hard work is now starting to show on the pitch.

‘You’re a lot more tentative when you’re low on confidence. I think now that everyone’s making better decisions and although we’ve had a few good results, we can’t get carried away. We need to carry on doing what got us the results in the first place, hard work, winning your battles and taking chances when they come.’
