Andrew Crofts says his recent knee surgery went as planned but admits the injury has been hard to take during such a successful season on a personal level.However the midfielder remains upbeat and hopes his performances in the first half of the season can play a part in the clubís promotion push.
He said, ďThe surgery went really well just over two weeks ago and that was a real success. Things were going so well, I was loving my football and I think everyone could see that.
ďObviously itís tough but thatís football, it was going really well and I was loving every minute of it and itís really hard at the minute, but I was at the Doncaster game seeing the boys.
ďSince the game against Birmingham we havenít had a home game so Iíve just been watching Sky at home and itís not the same.
ďObviously I canít affect anything out on the pitch but it was good being in the changing room and giving the lads good luck wishes. Hopefully I can be around it, but just being amongst the boys is what Iíve missed."

Crofts is helped from the field after suffering his injury
Crofts will be Albion's number one supporter for the rest of the campaign while he eyes a return to action in the summer.
ďIím going to be like a mad-keen fan until the end of the season and hopefully see us push into the playoffs.
ďIíve been lucky because Iíve never really had a bad injury but I knew Iíd done something bad, because it was something Iíd never felt before.
ďItís just day to day now. Iíve been working with the medical staff and Iíve got goals to reach here and there.
ďItís seven months until the start of the season so thatís realistic and, fingers crossed, Iíll be back getting ready for that.
ďThe fans have been great with me and hopefully next season theyíll see the best of me again.Ē
