STUART Lewis believes a gruelling Easter weekend has helped him get back to full fitness and recapture his inspiring form.

The tough-tackling midfielder was in fine form for Wanderers until a crunching tackle by ex-Blues midfielder John Mousinho in the home defeat to Stevenage on March 12.

Ankle ligament damage saw his sidelined for four matches but he played 180 minutes in the 0-0 draw at Torquay on Good Friday and 2-0 home win over Crewe yesterday.

The 24-year-old ex-Dagenham man was back to his combative best at Adams Park on Bank Holiday Monday and believes he is now fully primed for the final two games of the season.

He said: "It has been a great weekend. Torquay had been on a great run so to get a point there was excellent and today we needed to stamp our authority on this game and that is what we done.

"The injury couldn't have come at a worse time for me really because I was playing week-in week-out and it was an injury that couldn't be rushed.

"After a few games I feel back to the fitness levels I was at before which is pleasing."
Wanderers took full advantage of Shrewsbury's goalless draw with Accrington to climb back into the top three.

But Lewis insists they will need to put in the same tireless shift in their crunch game at Bury on Saturday.

He said: "It is in our hands now but we are not a squad that rests on our laurels. We will go to Bury and fly at them. They might be more relaxed (after getting promoted) but we have to worry about ourselves.

"It will be a tough game but if we show the work-ethic we have in the past two games we will be fine."
