Notts County's Rob Milsom feels the best he has 'for ages' after recovering from a knee injury.
The 29-year-old returned to the fold recently after enduring a frustrating 2015-16 campaign in which he featured only 14 times for the Magpies.
But, after playing in last week's win at Crawley and in the midweek victory against Hartlepool, he is happy to report his rehabilitation has been successful.
He said: "I feel brilliant - the best I've felt for ages. I feel fit, I'm fine in training - but it was a hot one at Crawley last week! A tough one for my first game back but I got through fine and I've been back to training normally this week - in lower temperatures!
"It's been really enjoyable coming back into a winning team. I've missed quite a lot of football, which has been well-documented, but I do everything I can to stay fit and to get myself on the pitch because I love playing football.
"I'm just looking to crack on now and get as many minutes as I can to get my match fitness back."
Milsom will therefore hope to be involved tomorrow when Grimsby Town arrive at Meadow Lane.
And, with Notts looking for their fourth consecutive win, Milsom says there are already noticeable differences between this season and last.
He said: "There's a winning mentality within the group now and I think you can see that. There's better quality, which raises the bar for the other players.
"They're the major two differences, but training's been good. Everyone's at it and trying to impress so they can get a start on a Saturday.
"We've won three in a row and we've obviously got to keep that going."
