Key Quotes

On his first long-term layoff: "At times its a lonely place in the physio room, so you have to get your head around that. This has been the longest injury I've ever had. I understand now when the boys say it's horrible being injured."

On making an impact: "I want to surpass where I was at before the injury. I feel a lot more settled here, I've been here almost a full season now, so hopefully I can show that on the field tomorrow."

On the big game: "Derby's are always big games. I'm back in the side and I've got something to prove. I want to help make it a competitive match and to get the win."
