Kieran Lee says his frustrations were relieved in part on Saturday as his comeback game finished in a 3-1 win for Wednesday.
The popular midfield man posted his first start of the season against Nottingham Forest following an hip problem and marked his return with an assist and a goal.
He told swfc.co.uk: “It’s been a frustrating start to the season personally because I have had to sit the first few games out.
“Any player will tell you that hurts more than an injury because you want to be out there playing and helping the team.
“Obviously I’m not 100% yet and the medical department are managing the situation day by day and week by week.
“But I felt good today and it was great to be back out there on the pitch.
“To get on the scoresheet was a bonus because the main thing was the win for the team and for me personally to come through okay.”
He added: “Not having played for a while, the legs can get a bit heavy and I’m sure I will feel it in the morning!
“But no, it’s great for me because there’s nothing worse than not being able to contribute, even though there’s nothing you can do about it.
“I’ve trained as much as I can and I am feeling fit, it’s that sharpness that you miss a little straight away.
“But that will come and hopefully I will be back firing on all cylinders sooner rather than later.
“It’s a little too early to say if I can play again on Tuesday so we will see what the next couple of days bring.”
