Kristian Dennis hoping for a first-team place

Dennis said “I picked up an injury in pre-season which obviously set me back a bit.

“I came back in good shape and then I had three or fours weeks out and only returned just before the season started.

“I was then in and out of the team, and now I am trying hard to get back in again.

“I was playing catch up with my fitness a few weeks ago, but not anymore.

“To get injured in pre-season was the last thing I needed, but it’s behind me now.

“I am feeling okay and hopefully I can kick on from here now and stay fit for the rest of the season.

“It’s going to be hard to get in, but I’ve got to be patient and wait for my chance.”
