Queens Park Rangers defender Fitz Hall is back in training after three weeks out with a groin injury.
Hall limped out of QPR's 3-1 defeat to Cardiff last month and was initially expected to miss six weeks of action.
However, he is ahead of schedule and physio Paul Hunter expects him to be available for selection again soon.
"Fitz is doing really well and he's been able to join in with some aspects of first-team training in Portugal," Hunter told the club's official website.
"We'll continue to monitor his rehabilitation closely over the coming days, but we're pleased with the progress he is making."
