STANLEY stopper Kenny Arthur thinks the Reds can now see the best of him a year after his horror leg break.
The Reds keeper suffered a broken leg last October in the clash with Bradford but, despite coming back from injury towards the back end of last season, the 29-year-old only now feels 100 per cent fit again.
"It has been a long road to recovery," said Arthur. "I spent most of last season injured and, even though the specialist said I could train again within four months, he said it would take a year to get to be pain free again.
"And it is a year now and I do feel my body is back to the way it was before it happened.
"I feel I can do everything I could before I broke my leg.
"Now it is just a case of getting stronger and keep improving to help to push Accrington up the table. I want to get as many games as I can under my belt ."
The stopper, who has won many plaudits including Wycombe boss Peter Taylor and Wolves chief Mick McCarthy this season, knows that the Reds need to find consistency to boost their League Two position.
The goalie admitted he was gutted when Stanley went on their seven game winless streak but two wins and a draw from the last four league games have renewed the side’s confidence.
"It was horrible when we couldn’t win," said Arthur.
"You go into a cocoon and just try and focus on the next game and try not to think too much about it.
"But I think the introduction of new loan players - such as Terry Gornell, Kieran Charnock and Kallum Higginbotham - have breathed fresh life into the team as they hadn’t been exposed to the bad run."
He continued: "When you are going through a bad spell I don’t think your realise that, as a team, you are low on confidence.
"It is only when you come out of it and feel the different atmosphere that you realise it. After the Luton win, you could sense the change at the club.
"We have got the same points over the last four games - seven - that we had over the first ten games and we have got to keep up that ratio now.
"We should have had more points but now we have got to be positive and be consistent.
"The key to being successful is consistency and, if we can now keep this up, then hopefully we will challenge at the right end of the table."
