Midfielder eager for more after injury comebackNORWICH City's Graham Dorrans wants to make the most of his return to fitness after completing 90 minutes in the Canaries' 3-2 Sky Bet Championship win over Cardiff City on Saturday.
Making his first competitive appearance of the season after suffering an injury in City's final warm-up game, the midfielder is now looking to maximise his personal opportunities over the coming weeks.
"I'm pleased to be back because I'd had a good pre-season and felt really good," Dorrans told the media at Colney on Monday lunchtime.
"Then in the final warm-up game I got an injury which was disappointing. I was feeling probably the best I had in the last year or so in terms of fitness and was raring to go.
"After picking up the injury it was a tough month for me. I've managed to get myself back in training and topped up my fitness before getting 90 minutes on Saturday which was good for me."
With a testing schedule ahead, the 29-year-old is relishing the cut and thrust of what the second tier offers ahead of Tuesday evening's clash with Wigan Athletic.
"It's a tough league because the games come thick and fast," he explained.
"You just need to approach each match as it comes. That's the case with this one [Wigan] too; we've ticked off Saturday so it's onto Tuesday now.
"We've got a good squad with lots of competition for places. Having that keeps everyone on their toes and playing to the best of their ability.
"We know Wigan is going to be a tough match but we'll treat it as we would any other game. We'll be going into it looking for the three points."
