QPR midfielder Akos Buzsaky is confident he will be fit for the start of the new Championship season.
The talented Hungarian missed the majority of the last campaign after undergoing surgery on a cruciate knee ligament injury back in November.
Buzsaky has revealed that his recovery is on schedule and he is eager to prove himself to new Loftus Road manager Jim Magilton.
"My knee is almost perfect now," he told Nemzeti Sport.
"There was a little complication after the surgery but at the beginning of February I could throw my crutches away. Since then everything happens to me as it was predicted.
"I can start playing football again on the 1st of July. I hope I won't have such an unlucky year I had this time, I'm just concentrating on getting my old form back."
Buzsaky believes the Championship promotion race will be tight with a number of clubs battling to secure a place in the Premier League.
He added: "It's impossible to predict which teams will win the promotion.
"Three big teams, Newcastle, Middlesbrough and West Brom are relegated from the Premier League, Leicester City and Nottingham became even stronger while Cardiff just missed the play-off.
"I don't know what our team's role will be in this difficult fight.
"I have three big dreams: I want to be a regular at QPR, I want to win promotion with the club and I want to help Hungary to qualify to the World Cup in 2010."
