AARON Wildig says he is "pleased to be back involved" after two and a half months out with a medial knee ligament injury.

Wildig featured in 22 games before Christmas and started each of the Shrimps' seven wins throughout that period before being ruled out for up to three months after sustaining a grade two medial ligament tear in the Boxing Day defeat at Tranmere Rovers.

The 26-year-old returned to the side on 9th March for the 3-0 victory over Forest Green Rovers and is pleased to be back in the side.

He said: "After two and a half months out so it's great to be back involved and especially to get two wins against difficult opponents.

"When you're watching at any stage of the season it's difficult and it looked as if we were coming into the business end in poor form, which was tough to watch. You just want to get back in there and help the lads.

"Just before I came back in we got two big results at Port Vale and Oldham, which gives the lads a bit of a buzz and to be coming back in at that time felt good."

The Shrimps took seven points from three games last week, with Wildig rested for the trip to Notts County after back-to-back starts following his injury lay-off.

Now, sitting nine points above the drop zone with eight games remaining, Wildig insists the Shrimps must learn from last season.

He added: "We're in a very similar position to this time last season but we didn't win another game, that experience should stand us in good stead and we mustn't make the same mistakes.”

"Nobody wants to be in that same position with two games to go and I think we're very capable of winning a good few games between now and the end of the season.

"There are goals up at the top of the pitch, we've kept two clean sheets in the last three games so there's no reason we can't end the season well.
