Lenny Pidgeley: Happy to be back

The Exiles number one returned to the team on Saturday for the first time since last season's Wembley play-off final and kept a clean sheet as County beat Bristol Rovers 1-0.

"It is great to be back," he told the South Wales Argus. "It's been a tough time for me over the summer, from being on a high after Wembley to being down in the dumps and feeling quite poorly for a couple of months.

"I don't want to go into too much detail really. It's personal stuff. I haven't been feeling too well but the club has dealt with it well.

"The supporters have been great with me. They were singing my name in the warm-up at Northampton last week and I've been getting a lot of supportive tweets."

wful, awful pundit. He was crap on BBC, and offered a little more analysis than Robbie Savage - apart from the delivery of banality in a sexy accent. Also, as I'm Irish he'll never be more then a slimy, hand-balling f**ker in my eyes.
