Bristol City's Lee Matthews says he could not explain how good the feeling was to finally find the net after 10 months without a goal.
Matthews has had months of injury misery
The striker was on target in the 5-2 pre-season friendly win over Forest Green.
His last competitive game was against QPR in September last season and he has been battling a serious of back injuries since then.
The 24-year-old said: "It's been so long and there were times last season when I didn't feel like I was ever going to play again.
"Even when they were telling me that it should be improving, it wasn't, so to get back pain-free and running well again is great," he told the club website.
The former Leeds forward described the goal against Forest Green as like "scoring at Wembley".
