The defender was hit with a virus which caused him to lose a lot of weight and miss almost a month of football at the beginning of the year.
“The illness really knocked me and I perhaps didn’t realise how much it had taken out of me,” he said.
“I came back into a different team and it was difficult because we were struggling a little bit.
“We had the Barnet game and I said that when I first came that I want to be a 7/10 every week.
“I want to make sure I give 100 percent and I think I have done that.
“In the last three or four games I’ve felt a lot better. Hopefully, I am slowly building my form up at the perfect time.”
