Despite his encouraging opening, the midfielder insists he is not yet up to 100 per cent in terms of match-fitness.
Cole told whufc.com: "I felt a bit stronger. It's just about getting my body hardened to playing 90 minutes again. It's nice to have an effect on games. I have played three games now and I've had an effect on them.
"It's good and I'm enjoying it - I'm enjoying my football and that's the main thing. I'm just settling in and all I want to do is be part of a good team and a good bunch of lads, help my team to win and enjoy my football - that's all I want."
