QPR midfielder Jordan Cousins has declared himself ready for a first team return after featuring in the under-23s side to face Charlton.

The Hoops fought back from 3-0 down to secure a 5-4 victory against Cousins’ former club, and while he said it was nice to be back, the midfielder said his focus was purely on getting fit.

Speaking to GetWestLondon after the match he said: “It was a great reaction from the boys.

“We did what the manager wanted us to do. We stopped making individual mistakes and knew that if we played the way we can that we could get the goals and the points we needed.

“It was nice to be back, but it’s a lot different now. I’m a QPR player and I’m just trying to be as sharp as I can so that when I get a chance in the first team then I’m ready to go.”

The former-Charlton man has been putting in the hard yards behind the scenes in a quest to return to the first team after suffering another hamstring injury in August, but 23-year-old has declared himself ready to return to the first team.

He said: “It’s my third game now. I played against Watford, I played against Crystal Palace and now Charlton’s my third game so I declare myself fit and ready to go now.

“It’s just about biding my time. I probably needed the minutes from today’s game but now I feel good and it’s up to the manager now.

“I’ll train as hard as I can and when the opportunity comes I’ll make sure I take it.”
