Adam Forshaw: I couldn’t wait to get going

Midfielder on return to action against Crewe.

Adam Forshaw chatted with LUTV after playing for an hour on his return to first team action.  

The midfielder was constantly involved as the Whites had the majority of the ball throughout, and was delighted to be back on the pitch with his teammates in front of the sold-out crowd.

“I am just happy, obviously, relieved and happy,” Forshaw explained at full time.  

“I had a little bit of butterflies, but I was fine to be honest and excited all day. 

"Then when we came out I had the jitters a little bit but couldn’t wait to get going and get a touch on the ball, I loved it.

“We ground them down, they did well. They frustrated us a little bit and as the game went on I think our fitness took over.

“After we made some substitutions and had fresh legs, the lads took over and got the win.”

Following a long journey back and plenty of hard-work along the way, Forshaw was quick to praise the people who had helped him in the process, whilst also stating he now hopes to fight for his position in the team. 

He said: “I felt great and I feel really good. 

“First and foremost I’ve been pain free now for the whole of pre-season and I am gradually building my fitness.

“The manager, the staff and the physios have been brilliant with me, they’ve managed me loads.

“They are making the decisions on the amount of minutes I am playing so I have to thank them for that. 

“I am not just here to make the numbers up, I want to start playing regularly again.  

“I understand it is going to be a long process and it has been a long process to get back here, but yeah, I have aspirations to play again.”
