ADAM Green insists he is happy at Hayes & Yeading after he was left out of the squad for Saturday's defeat at home to Altrincham.
The 26-year-old is determined to break back into manager Garry Haylock's side as he is now fully recovered from the knee ligament injury that has sidelined him since early September.
And the ex-Fulham full-back says that just being selected for Saturday's FA Cup clash at home to Wycombe Wanderers would be the equal of playing in front of over 67,000 fans at Old Trafford in a 2004 quarter-final tie.
Green, one of only two regulars from last season to still be at the club, returned as an unused substitute in the last round at Poole Town, but he failed to make the bench on Saturday with on-loan QPR youngster Lee Brown preferred.
“I am fully fit and ready to go, but I have to just wait to get back in,” said Green. “I do not know whether he (Haylock) just wanted to keep it the same after the win at Poole.
“I was on the bench at Poole, but for some reason I was left out today. Maybe the manager wanted different options on the bench, but that is his decision which I am not going to argue with.
“I love it here as the fans are brilliant. I have been out injured and yet the fans always come up to me and ask me when I will be back – I really appreciate that.”
And Green added that the Wycombe tie is just as important as when he was given the nod by then Cottagers boss Chris Coleman to line-up at Old Trafford in a last-eight tie that Fulham eventually lost 2-1 with a double from Ruud Van Nistelrooy.
“For me personally, that is going to be hard to beat as it was the highlight of my 13 games for Fulham,” he said. “But to be involved against Wycombe would be just as big for me.”
