Fleetwood forward Aaron Amadi-Holloway is finally feeling good after a hard start to his Town career.

When the forward arrived at Highbury from Wycombe Wanderers in the summer he was recovering from an ankle injury.

After getting his way into contention he pulled up with a hamstring injury after Fleetwood’s game against Bolton at the end of August and has only just made his comeback.

Amadi-Holloway set up two goals in Town’s 4-2 Checkatrade Trophy defeat at Carlisle earlier this month and followed it up with a goal in their 4-2, extra-time win over Southport last week.

Now the 23-year-old is keen to get more minutes under his belt as Town face AFC Wimbledon today.

He said: “I’m feeling very good to get back playing and get some assists and some goals is what I want to do.

“It has been a hard time since I have been here but I have got my chance and hopefully now I will get some more minutes.

“It is a hard time for any player to come back from injury and I’d just come back from my ankle injury.

“As I was coming back I got injured again which is like the worst thing that could have happened but it is over now and I have just got to hit the ground running really.”

And Amadi-Holloway says he brings other qualities to complement David Ball, Ash Hunter, Chris Long, Devante Cole and Alex Jakubiak.

He said: “That is what is going so well for me is that I’m different. We have got a few strikers here which are doing really well but I’m still something different that they haven’t got so if they need someone big or a target man then I’m the one really.”
