AFC Telford striker Craig Farrell says the lack of first-team action spurred him on to take his chance in his first start for the club at the weekend.
Farrell scored in the second-half to give the Bucks hope of securing a point but a late Bluebirds goal confined
The 28-year old former Leeds trainee told BBC Radio Shropshire: "It's good to be back.
"I feel like I had a decent game and took my chance well for the goal."
Farrell had previously been left out of the squad and only played in a handful of games coming on from the bench.
"It's been frustrating training on a Saturday morning running around a track," Farrell added.
"You just want to play football. It's been a long time coming but you've got to respect the manager's decision, he picks the team.
"We've had a chat and I think things are starting to go well for me.
The former Rushden and Diamonds' striker scored his second goal for the Bucks at Barrow - his first proving to be the winner against York City earlier in the season.
