Queens Park Rangers welcomed back on loan Stoke City man Geoff Cameron for our recent game against Hull City.
Fighting back from 2-0 down in the game to take a point and again attempt to address our form in the 2019 side of the current Championship campaign, the 33-year-old was a sight for sore eyes. Given his impact on the team originally following his arrival at Loftus Road, it’s easy to argue he has been a massive miss as results fell off a cliff in recent times.
Now it’s fair to say, he’s searching for fitness and sharpness, and he did only make it until the 56th minute and our fight back occurred after he was substituted – but hey, let’s take the positives of his return.
Speaking to the Official Site with his last game coming in December, he said of his lay off.
“It was great to be back out there. It’s been a long three months! I knew I wasn’t going to last 90 minutes after so long out, but it was just a case of getting my fitness back and it felt pretty good.”
With his replacement on the day, Josh Scowen, getting the fight back underway, he obviously came in for massive praise.
“Josh came on and gave us some energy. He’s a little rat and loves to get in amongst it. He showed great ambition to get the first one and then set up the second for Tomer to finish it. For me it was coming, and should have happened in the first half. We had so many balls that just didn’t quite break for us but we stayed in it and, once we settled down, we were the better team.”
Cameron can now take full advantage of the international break to get back into peak condition and let’s hope his return, sees us build on that point now so it doesn’t become another false dawn.
