Michael Bostwick praised Lincoln City's medical staff as the 31-year-old made his first City appearance in the victory over Burton Albion, since September.
Bostwick was forced off at half-time of the Bristol Rovers defeat with a calf issue, with last Saturday's substitute appearance being the first time he entered the field in a competitive fixture since.
It was Bozzy's first appearance under Michael Appleton, and the central defender admitted that he's looking forward to the remainder of the season, now.
"It feels like forever since I last played. Everyone in the medical team has done a great job since and I can't wait for the rest of the season now," he said.
"It’s frustrating and up until two weeks ago I hadn’t done a session with the gaffer, and it was possibly the worst time to get an injury."
It was City's first away win under Michael Appleton, and Bozzy is hoping that the Imps can gain confidence from the victory ahead of a busy Christmas schedule.
"The whole team worked hard together and we got what we deserved in the end," he said.
"It was a massive result for everyone connected with the club. We’ve had good performances but not the results and that will do everyone’s confidence the world of good going into the weekend.
"Confidence comes from winning games, but it was good to get the three points and it’s good to move forward.
"Christmas is a good time of year, you play lots of games in a short space of time and it’s a great period to play football."
The Imps face Tranmere Rovers on Saturday, who were promoted from the National League a season after City, and joined the Imps with promotion to Sky Bet League One in 2019.
"It’s a tough game, it has been every time I have faced them when here, but we have to use our performance from Saturday and take it into this weekend’s game."
"I’ve got loads left in my engine, i’ve obviously had my calf problems, but hopefully the hard work I have put in will have removed that now."
