Loic Remy took the field in his first full game for Palace at Bolton Wanderers on Saturday afternoon as he completed forty five minutes following the ankle injury sustained just after he joined the Eagles on loan from Chelsea
The striker spoke after the game about his delight at taking the field in Palace colours as the 0-0 draw will see the League One side visit Selhurst Park next Tuesday for a replay.
"Yes it was ok and even though I would have preferred it to end with a win but from my personal point of view I think we had a good game this afternoon and now we can look forward to the next game but for me it is very good to be back in the squad.
"It was important that we monitored the amount of game time I had. I talked to the manager before the game so it was already planned that I was going to play 45 minutes that will build me up for the next game and hopefully I will be able to get more minutes in that match."
His own recovery programme came to a successful conclusion with a starting place at The Macron Stadium and the 30 year old hopes for more game time in the coming weeks as league progress continues to be the priority.
"I feel completely fit having worked with the medical staff who did a great job with me so hopefully no more injuries for the rest of the season as I really want to help the team as much as possible to get into a better position in the league table.
"We know where we are in the league but we also know the quality of our squad so there is no reason we cannot improve our position in the table and need to work hard. We now go on game to game and I am quietly confident that we will be back soon."
