Dickson Etuhu has set his sights on a return to Fulham's starting line-up after making his comeback from injury in the goalless draw with West Brom.
The Nigerian midfielder has been sidelined for a month with a thigh injury, but he made a late cameo in Saturday's stalemate at The Hawthorns.
Now Etuhu is relishing the battle with Danny Murphy, Steve Sidwell and Marcel Gecov for a place in Fulham's engine room.
"It was good to be back," Etuhu told the Fulham Chronicle. "I didn't really have time to get into it but I feel good.
"I'm probably a couple of games away from full fitness. We have some great players here but I'm confident in myself and my ability, so hopefully I will get some game time."
Etuhu will be hoping to return to the starting XI for Thursday's Europa League clash with OB Odense.
