QPR defender Grant Hall says it was good to be back in the blue and white hoops after returning for the under-23s against Coventry City.

The 25-year-old played the first 45 minutes of the 1-0 victory at Loftus Road, and said it was strange to back in action at W12.

Speaking to GetWestLondon, he said: "It was just good to be back out there to be honest. It's been a frustrating time for me, I think it's been nearly three months since I've been out so it's good to get some minutes in me and hopefully I can kick on from here.

"It was quite strange to be back at Loftus Road actually, and quite weird to be walking into the changing room. It's been quite a frustrating time, obviously I've had setbacks as well so to get 45 minutes under my belt is really pleasing.

"I felt quite good to be fair, I thought I'd feel more tired but I was okay. It was a good game to ease myself back into and hopefully I can get some more minutes and get myself back into first team action."

Paul Hall discusses his role with QPR under-23s following victory over Coventry City

Hall has been out of action for three months with a knee injury, and although his comeback went better than expected, he says it will be a couple of weeks before he's back in contention for the first team.

He said: "It's my first 45 minutes, so I'd like to get maybe one or two more games for the under-23s and just build up my fitness.

"I don't want to go into the first team without being ready, because the league is relentless, so I want to be all guns blazing and ready to go."
