Norwich City defender Zak Whitbread is happy to be back in the first team.

Whitbread has not featured as often as he would have liked this season, with injury keeping him out for three months, but he is determined to play his part and says he cannot wait for each passing game to roll around.

He told the Pink 'Un: "It was good to get the few games in quick succession.

"The first couple I was pulling a few caravans but I felt a bit better towards the end against Spurs and I feel like I'm getting some legs back, so I'm looking forward to Fulham (on New Year's Eve).

"I've enjoyed a good few games in a short space of time and they keep coming thick and fast, and we've got to pick up as many points as possible.

"You could say it's a different task, but Fulham got a great result at Chelsea and every game is as hard as the next, and we've got to approach it as any other.

"It's at home, so again we will go into it looking to get points out of it because that's the way we are. But it will be a tough game. They've done well.

"All the games are massive but a lot of people do say you've got to beat the teams around you in this league. Fulham is a massive game for us - every game is."
