The Nigerian midfielder has been sidelined for a month with a thigh injury, but came on two minutes from time in Saturday's stalemate at The Hawthorns. Now Etuhu is relishing the battle with Danny Murphy, Steve Sidwell and Marcel Gecov for a place in Fulham's engine room. "It was good to be back," he said. "I didn't really have time to get into it but I feel good. "I'm probably a couple of games away from full fitness. We have some great players here but I'm confident in myself and my ability, so hopefully I will get some game time." Fulham travel to Denmark to face OB Odense in the Europa League on Thursday.
