Joe Quigley has said he is hoping to be able to fight his way back in to the Yeovil Town starting line-up after making his return from more than a month out with injury.

The striker, who has six goals already this season, came on as a 57th minute replacement for Adi Yussuf in the 2-1 defeat at home to Torquay United, his first appearance since the end of November.

Speaking to BBC Somerset’s Sheridan Robins, Quigley said: “We had a good full week of training, the game being cancelled (against W*ymouth on Wednesday) gave me a chance to train the full week with the team.

“I felt sharp and I just have to keep building with that. It’s time to kick on both individually and as a team, we have got to improve.”

Manager Darren Sarll praised the impact the frontman had when he came on against Torquay, but said they did not use him well enough.

He said: “(Joe) looked very determined, we didn’t use him well enough. We are still trying to come to terms with Dillon (Barnes, the on-loan goalkeeper) distribution, so we didn’t use Joe as well as we could have done.

“Joe stood up the whole first half and I hate it when subs stand up in the dug-out, and you could tell he was desperate to get on the pitch.
