Arbroath match preview
16th September 2011
MIDFIELDER Sean Lynch says it's great to be back after injury ruined the start of his season.
The 24-year-old has scored two goals in his two games following a return to Jimmy Boyle's starting line-up last month.
Lynch was forced to wait before making his competitive debut for Airdrie after suffering ankle ligament damage in the 1-1 pre-season friendly draw with Alloa Athletic.
But the ex-Falkirk and St Mirren ace is looking to make a positive impact in the 'Diamond' now that his injury troubles are firmly behind him.
He said: "I was frustrated to miss a few weeks at the start of the season but this is the first time my ankle has felt really good so I'm very pleased with that.
"I just want to get even fitter and move forward as an individual player and with the team.
"I'm extremely impressed with the players at the club. There are players with a lot of ability who are hoping to take this club to the next level."
Airdrie travel to Arbroath tomorrow following their 4-0 win over local rivals Albion Rovers in last weekend's derby clash with Lynch quick to acknowledge the importance of the victory.
He added: "It's always good for the players to win a derby for the fans. When you play for the club, you become attached to it. You develop a feeling for the place.
"You don't want the fans on your back by losing derbies. I'm a Hibs fan so I know how important derby matches are to the fans."
