Grandison - It Was Good To Be Back

Jermaine Grandison has said it was great to be back as he pulled on the shirt for the first time in a while as a substitute against Leyton Orient in midweek.

It wasn't the perfect return to action following injury, leaving the club and then signing a new deal, as we lost, but it had been a long time coming for him on a personal note and he's hoping his 15 minute run out is the first of many to come again now.

Speaking to the Official Site following the game, the defender said it felt really good to get back out on the pitch and he felt fine at full time, and he couldn't thank the fans more for the reception they gave him.

'It felt really good, the reception when I was warming up and when I came on. It was a feeling of excitement when I was about to come on as I don't really get nervous. I was just really looking forward to getting back on the pitch and I was glad to get on, but it wasn't the best result. It was a big game for us and three points would've been good but we've just got to concentrate on the next game and hopefully get the three points.'

It was obviously Grandison's first run out since last April and the hip issues he had, and whilst he admits there was slight discomfort after the run out, it's not anything that will keep him out of the game this weekend against MK Dons, and it should be something that abates itself as he returns more to fitness and does more training, although he did say that was disappointing but it is what it is and he knows he does have some way to go yet before he is fully fit and match sharp and little aches after an injury lay off aren't new or unexpected.

Hopefully it isn't an indication of further problems for him though, and whatever discomfort he felt, soon disappears.
