"I'm really getting into my stride," says Magpies winger Campbell-Ryce
NOTTS County's flying winger Jamal Campbell-Ryce says he is really getting into his stride now.
The Magpies face Colchester United away in League One tonight (7.45pm).
Campbell-Ryce spent a short spell of his career on loan with the U's, playing four league games as they won promotion into the Championship in 2006.
But he will be out to beat them with Notts to strengthen their position in the top-six in League One.
After joining the Magpies in the summer, Campbell-Ryce had to wait until mid-September to play his first league game because of a calf injury.
But he has now looking a big threat in their attack and has scored four goals – three from the penalty spot.
"The beginning of the season was a frustrating time for me, being out injured," he said.
"I never really had a pre-season because of the injury so once I got into the side it was all about getting my fitness up.
"The more games I'm playing, the fitter I'm feeling and the fitter I am I think the better my performances.
"I really feel like I'm getting into my stride now – 100 per cent.
"I'm enjoying my football, the gaffer and my team-mates are giving me a lot of confidence.
"They are trying to give me the ball as much as possible so I'm definitely enjoying it and I hope I can go from strength to strength in the rest of the season."
The Magpies go to Colchester unbeaten in a club record 16 away games.
They have not lost once on the road since Keith Curle took charge way back in February and Campbell-Ryce hopes they can extend it even further.
"Our away form is magnificent so hopefully we can get another three points tonight," he added.
