QPR's Mackie on the comeback trail

QPR attacker Jamie Mackie says he is working hard to get back to full fitness ahead of the Premier League season.

The 25-year old suffered a broken leg in a strong challenge from El-Hadji Diouf in the FA Cup third round against Blackburn Rovers in January, forcing him out for the remainder of the Championship-winning campaign.

Now Mackie is on the comeback trail and working as hard as he can to be right for QPR's entry into the top flight.

"I'm just getting my head down and working hard," he told the club's official website.

"Obviously it's going to be a tough slog over the summer months when the rest of the boys are on holiday, but it will all be worth it once pre-season comes around again at the start of July."

Mackie added: "Everything is on track at the moment and whilst myself and the medical and fitness teams haven't set any specific goals, everything is going as smoothly as we could have hoped for.

"The medical and fitness staff have been spot on with me and as soon as I'm back fit, I'm back fit - we don't need to put a time scale on things at this stage."
