Charlie Raglan was happy to be back out playing football for Cheltenham Town though was disappointed with the nature of how him and his teammates exited this season's FA Cup competition.
Having not played since September the defender came on as a second half substitute at the Cherry Red Records Stadium.
He couldn't prevent the Robins from slipping to a 4-3 defeat in London, but to be able to get game time after the time he has had out on the treatment table was a real plus for the popular defender.
"It is a little milestone for me," he said. "I've had a tough time of it. Since I've been at this club I've played a lot of football and now I've had a long spell out so I hope that's behind me and I'm pretty sure it is. I've worked hard and I feel confident in my body which is what I wasn't at one stage.
"It's disappointing with the performance and the goals that we conceded.
"It's not been like us recently. I've watched most of the games and probably feel like we've lowered our standards and the boys know that, we're not daft, we don't need anyone to tell us. The manager will tell us and quite rightly so.
"We're the ones on the pitch and we're the ones who can do something about it. We have to move on quickly so we don't want to dwell on it but we need to learn from it and why it was one of those days. It's probably a case of not passing the ball as well as we should have - simple things that we have been doing really well."
