Alejandro Faurlin is determined to be patient as he closes in on a QPR comeback after six months out injured.
Faurlin is eyeing a first-team place after coming through two reserve matches unscathed.
The 25-year-old has yet to play under Hoops boss Mark Hughes after rupturing his anterior cruciate ligaments in an FA Cup clash with MK Dons in January - Neil Warnock's final game in charge.
But the Argentine midfielder hopes the wait will soon be over and claims he is on the brink of a Premier League return.
"I am progressing, although I understand I have to be patient, not get frustrated and just keep working hard," he said, quoted in the Daily Star.
"I'm in the final weeks of a comeback now. I need to keep focused. I know I'm nearly there."
