Defender Adam Montgomery spoke to the media after returning from a six-week injury against Lincoln City this afternoon and managed 45 minutes on the pitch.

Montgomery, who is on loan from Scottish Premiership side Celtic, has been out of action since he made his club debut against Tranmere Rovers back at the start of September and is pleased to be back on the pitch after that tough spell.

In the clash, the full-back played a more advanced role than we’ve seen him in the past and was a bright spark down the left-hand side, but his time was managed by the coaching staff to protect the youngster and his fitness to ease him back into game time.

Here’s what Adam had to say after the game:

On being back on the grass...

"It was great to be back out there, I could tell I had been out for a while. 45 minutes in my legs was positive but, unfortunately, we didn't get the result – I'm sure they will start coming.

“The gaffer said to me that he would get as much out of me as he could and I’m happy with that as a start. Games are coming thick and fast so that is a positive for me.

“I am quite an attacking full-back where I can do both roles attacking and defending - we all know we can create opportunities and start scoring some goals."

On his own development within the squad...

"It's been a tough start for the team, a couple of injuries have killed any momentum we tried to create coming in from pre-season, personally I am looking forward to getting things going again.

"I'm desperate to play as much as I can from now until the end of the season, that's my goal and I intend to do that - I have played quite a few positions in my career so far, the whole left-hand side I can do.

“There are a few positions I haven't played in a while, but there it is a few that I can definitely play. We have a great dressing room, it's a very good squad, we all need to keep listening and figure out where we all are and then it will start clicking pretty soon."
