Peterborough United midfielder Lee Frecklington has said that the past few months have been the best of his football career to date.
The 26-year-old, who signed a new two-and-a-half-year deal on Friday, has been a regular in the starting XI.
He told BBC Radio Cambridgeshire: "I'm enjoying my football at the moment more than I ever have done in the past.
"I got transfer listed over the summer, but have worked hard really to earn this second chance."
Frecklington struggled with injury and started just three matches as Posh were promoted from League One last season.
He was transfer listed by boss Darren Ferguson back in June, but was then handed a reprieve ahead of the new campaign.
"It's nice to be rewarded with a new contract, as my current deal was up at the end of the season," Frecklington said.
"Now I can just concentrate on my football for the rest of the season and hopefully play a big part in what this club is doing."
Meanwhile, boss Darren Ferguson has said they must address their defensive problems, despite Saturday's 3-2 win over Derby.
Posh have the worst defensive record in the Championship, with 29 goals conceded in just 16 matches.
"We've got to stop conceding so many goals, but I didn't want to dwell on the negatives after such a great win," Ferguson said.
"We never give in and we've never had a spanking this season such as the one we gave Ipswich, which says a lot about our spirit."
