QPR midfielder Alejandro Faurlin admits he is surprised to find himself back in the Hoops first team so early in the campaign.
The Argentine spent seven months on the sidelines with an anterior cruciate ligament injury but made his comeback in the 3-0 Capital One Cup win over Walsall.
Faurlin was then a shock inclusion in the starting XI for the Premier League clash with Manchester City four days later.
"I didn't expect to be back so soon," Faurlin told QPR's official website. "My target was to come back after the international break but football is like this.
"I am not quite there yet but I have to take the positives from all this. I am very happy to come through two games in one week after seven months out.
"I feel I am 70% fit at the moment. I just need to get that sharpness back and this will come by playing games."
