Jamie Forshaw is ready to make up for lost time with Lowestoft Town, according to boss Ady Gallagher, writes Mark Armstrong.
Forshaw rejoined the Trawlerboys this summer after four seasons away from Crown Meadow, which included spells with King's Lynn and Wroxham. The striker grew frustrated at a lack of game time during his first spell with the Blues but looks set to become a key part of the squad this season having notched his first goal of the season against Needham Market on Tuesday evening.
Forshaw is likely to lead the line alongside Jake Reed again this afternoon when Tonbridge Angels come to the Meadow and Gallagher believes the Blues are reaping the benefits of his time away from the club.
'I was really pleased with his overall display against Needham,' said Gallagher.
'I never doubted Jamie's ability when he was here before. He has probably come to terms with the role he has been asked to play a bit more now and the level of football as well.

'We've always known he can score goals and it's great to have him back in the fold. Hopefully he can keep scoring and he knows he's just got to keep working as hard as he is.'
Lowestoft have made a decent start to the season although Gallagher thought his side should have taken all three points against Needham. Gallagher will be looking for the Blues to match the performance level of their opening-day win at Bognor when Tonbridge arrive.

'Most teams that start with a win and a draw would be pretty pleased with that,' said the Blues chief.
'I felt we were good value on Saturday and we should have won the game on Tuesday. The key for us in this league is to maintain a good level of consistency.'
Shaun Bammant will serve the last of a three-match suspension carried over from last season.
Tonbridge have enjoyed a good start to the season with consecutive wins and Gallagher knows his side will have to perform well to get anything from the game.
He added: 'We know Tonbridge will prove very good opposition. They had a very good end to last season but it's up to us to impose our game on them.'
