CARLOS Edwards says he has no worries about playing two games in four days as Millwall look for a third win in a row tonight against Port Vale.

Edwards’ return to the side after almost a year out has coincided with two wins in two for the Lions.

The 36-year-old was involved in creating the opener for Aiden O’Brien against Crewe on Saturday after providing the assist for Shaun Williams in the Johnstone’s Paint Trophy win over Peterborough.

And he also believes it is an “achievement” to be back in the first team after so long out.

“I got enough rest (after Saturday),” he said. “I came out of the cocoon on Sunday, I was preserving myself a bit! So I feel fresh.

“The manager knows the older I get I might need that extra half a day or day to recover. So he works with me in that way, as does Bob (Bacic). I would say if I’m called upon again I would be ready.

“I’m just hoping we get continuity from our away form to our home form. It’s only a matter of time before we start winning games at home.

“It’s going to be a long and tough season.

“After the victory on Saturday we're looking for three more points against Port Vale and then we can look forward to next weekend, but obviously we want to take it one game at a time.

“It’s quite an achievement for me to be playing, looking back at my injury. To say the least I’m happy to be back, happy to be back on winning ways.

“I’m happy to be back in and around the changing room, having a bit of banter on the bus, the hotel. Long may it continue.
