Mutch knows he's likely to return to the bench for this weekend's clash with Newcastle United.
I'd love to start, I want to start (against Newcastle)," he stressed to the Western Mail. "That's always been the aim and it's still the same.
"But I'll be patient, and I'll keep working towards achieving that.
"My confidence is the same, I believe in my own ability, but scoring a goal like the one at Fulham can only help my cause.
"I'll keep working on my game and try to impress in training and whenever I get a chance in matches."
