There was a welcome return to action for imposing defender Exodus Geohaghon in Nuneaton Town`s victory at AFC Telford United in the Vanarama National League North on Easter Monday.
The experienced 32-year-old has seen his progress halted due to injury since he returned to the club in November in a player-coach role.
“It’s been frustrating but I have suffered because of not having a proper pre-season,” he admitted. “I’m not a good watcher of football, to be honest; I prefer to be out there in the thick of the action.
“It was good to be back on Monday and hopefully I can get more minutes under my belt on Saturday and in the final game at Alfreton Town next weekend as I build up my fitness levels.
“Our performances have been very good in recent weeks; the lads are going into every game full of belief and we’re getting the results.
“Despite being in the middle of the table, winning matches creates a buzz around the place and it’s good that we are ending the season with some momentum.
“We’ve got a young squad here, but the lads are responding well to what they are being told and really showing what they are capable of.
“It all bodes well for the future of the club and as one of the more experienced players in the side I’d like to think that I can help them develop”.
