Nottingham Forest midfielder Chris Cohen wants to stay at the club but knows he must work hard to win his place back in the side first.
Cohen is out of contract in the summer and made his return to the matchday squad in last weekend’s draw against Wigan, and the midfielder is willing to bide his time for his chance.
He said: “It is brilliant to be back. It is going to be hard to get my place back as the improvement in the performances and results has been there and you have seen a different style of football and one that is exciting to watch. I am just waiting for my chance, trying hard in training and waiting to see what happens.
“I’d love to stay but the club has to do what is right for them. If you take the emotion out of it, I haven’t played enough games over the last few years. The club has a decision to make and whatever the decision is I will respect it. I have had a great time here and have loved every minute of it and I hope that it can get sorted out.”
Cohen is hoping to be involved again on Saturday in the Kids for a Quid clash with Brighton at The City Ground and he expects a tough game against the high-flying Seagulls.
He said: “They are going to be wounded from Tuesday night and they have a lot of players that have played in the Championship for a long time. When we have played at The City Ground since Gary, Jack and Pagey have come in we have got three wins and one loss and I believe we can go out and win this game but it will be a tough test.
“They have been brilliant all year and they are a fantastic side. They have been winning games for the past few years in the Championship and they have weapons that can hurt us but we believe we are capable of beating anyone on our day, especially at The City Ground.
“The atmosphere is everything and you do feel it, even subconsciously sometimes. With it being Kids for a Quid, the more fans that are here it can create a good atmosphere. It is about us starting the game well and creating a positive atmosphere and we need to give them something to shout about.”
