Campbell targets December comeback

QPR striker set to return to action before Christmas

DJ Campbell has scored one goal since his summer move to QPR

QPR striker DJ Campbell has set his sights on a return to first-team action before Christmas as he continues his recovery from a foot injury.

Campbell, who joined QPR from Blackpool in the summer, fractured a metatarsal in training in October after making five Barclays Premier League appearances for Rangers.

"The recovery is going well. The foot feels good now, and I am concentrating on doing strengthening work on my calf and thigh," said Campbell, who stopped wearing a protective boot last week.

The 30-year-old striker opened his Barclays Premier League account for Rangers with a goal in the 3-0 victory at Wolves on 17th September.

"Three to four weeks is my target"

He admits it has been frustrating to watch from the sidelines as Rangers have marked their return to the top flight by establishing themselves in the top half of the table.

"Three to four weeks is the target for my return, and if I can get back sooner that would be great," Campbell told QPR's official website (qpr.co.uk).

"We have always said December and that's looking good at the moment. Touch wood there will be no setbacks, and I will be back soon."
