Cousins: 'It was great to feel a football'

MIDFIELDER Jordan Cousins admitted it was great to feel a football again this week when he featured for QPR’s Under-23s.

The 23-year-old completed 75 minutes for the R’s youngsters in their 2-1 win against the Hornets on Monday.

It was the former Charlton Athletic players first action since injuring his hamstring two weeks before the start of the season.

And Cousins was happy with how his return to action went.

“It was very good to be touching a ball again,” Jordan told “It’s the start of getting my match fitness back.

“I’d trained for two full weeks so it was good to get a game in and get my sharpness back. Hopefully I can push on and be available for the first team.

“It was against a strong Watford side which is what I needed. There were Premier League players and I felt really good.

“It was a good three points for the Under-23s and I was glad that I was able to work as hard as they did.

“I’ll keep trying to to get fitness wherever I can now. The midfield has done well, we’ve got a good team in there, but it is my job to work hard and get into the gaffers thoughts.”
