Hibernian's on-loan striker Darryl Duffy is keen to show what he can do after seeing his season blighted by injury.
The Scotsman has managed just nine appearances since joining Hibs on loan from Bristol Rovers in August.
The former Rangers trainee was sidelined for three months after breaking his foot prior to making his debut, and admits he is finding it hard to make up for lost time.
He told skysports.com: "It has been a frustrating time for me with the injuries reducing my playing time, but at the same time I've been enjoying it up here.
"I'm back fit now so I just have to wait for my chance and make sure I take it when it comes round.
"We are seven games unbeaten now, with six wins in that sequence, so we are on a really good run at the minute, which is why I'm going to find it difficult to break back into the side because quite rightly the manager doesn't want to change a winning team unless injuries and suspensions force him to.
"I've just got to be patient and wait for the opportunity because I can't do much about it until given a chance to show what I can do on the pitch.
"I'm lacking a lot of fitness having been out and the gaffer has told me that he isn't concerned about my ability, but that I'm still a little behind fitness-wise.
"He doesn't really want to chuck me back into the first team when I'm not 100% sharp, so it is just a case of needing a couple of games under my belt before I get my chance."
