Returning from a season-long loan spell at Swansea City which saw the south Wales side reach the play-offs, Wilmot has good experience of Championship football and is looking to mount another promotion push this year.
“I was excited to come back and I’m just raring to go really,” said the centre-half.
“I was disappointed to miss last week’s game, but I’ve been training hard for the last two weeks now so I was just glad to get 90 minutes today and I’m looking forward to next week.
“Personally, I want to play every game, and like the rest of the team, I want to go straight back up. If I can do my bit to get us straight back up then happy days, but that’s the overall aim really.
“I know what’s coming and I know what to expect, whereas some people maybe won’t. So in that sense I might be at a slight advantage but everybody’s going to learn quickly and we haven’t got time to not learn really. So, everybody will get used to it and I think we have a right good chance of going straight back up this year.”
