North Queensland Fury attacker David Williams is set for a shock return to action, just five weeks after sustaining a serious hamstring injury.

The 21-year old was expected to be sidelined for the remainder of the season after badly tearing his hamstring last time the Fury took on his former club Brisbane Roar but he has trained all week and is hoping to be back for this Saturday’s re-match with the Roar at Dairy Farmers Stadium.

''I've been training (yesterday) and Tuesday and I'll train (today) as well as tomorrow and see how I pull up,'' he said.

''But it's all looking good and I'll put my hand up for selection for this weekend's game at this rate.

''I'm glad it's this weekend against the Roar.

''Hopefully I can prove something after getting injured against them.”

Williams said that the Fury were determined to put last Friday’s disappointing 3-0 loss to the Wellington Phoenix behind them with a much-improved performance against Brisbane.

''We lost 3-0 to Wellington and we definitely want to prove a point that we're better than that,'' he added.

''Everyone knows we are and we have the confidence to back ourselves which is the big thing we want to get into our heads.

''We know what we can do.

''We've got to pull everything else aside and concentrate on playing the football we know we can.''
