AKOS Buszaky sparkled on his comeback - but new Rangers boss Jim Magilton believes there is much better to come from the Hungarian playmaker.
Buszaky, who had not featured since tearing his cruciate ligament nine months ago at Old Trafford, scored the Rs' opener and set up their second goal for Heidar Helguson inSaturday's 4-0 win at Aldershot Town.
Patrick Agyemang and Dexter Blackstock - who returned to the fold after ending last season on loan at Nottingham Forest - both found the target in the second half of Saturday's friendly to complete a comfortable victory.

"Akos has got real quality," said Magilton. "He was a big loss last year and he's worked extremely hard on his fitness all summer while everyone else has been out sunning themselves.
"He deserved to start, it's just reward and I was pleased with a lot of the things he did, but less pleased with some of the other things, so there's a bit still to work on.

"Everyone got 45 minutes - apart from Rowan Vine, who had to come off just as a precaution - and I was happy with our finishing, which was probably the difference between the two sides."
Triallist David Connolly showed some good touches in attack for the Rs, but Buszaky was at the hub of their attacking play and set up Helguson to thunder a drive against the crossbar.
Deft control enabled to Buzsaky to evade two defenders and rifle into the far corner in the 25th minute and two minutes later he volleyed Wayne Routledge's cross back for Helguson to nudge past the goalkeeper.
Agyemang, one of 10 second-half substitutes, made it 3-0 12 minutes after the restart, latching onto Mikele Leigertwood's raking pass and dinking it into the net.
Blackstock pounced on a defensive error to score Rangers' fourth soon afterwards and Aldershot were denied a consolation goal after Danny Hylton was tripped in the area by Joe Oastler.
The referee pointed to the spot, but Radek Cerny - who had earlier denied Lewis Chalmers and Louie Soares - dived to his right to push Hylton's penalty clear.
QPR (first half): Cerny; Rose, Hall, M Connolly, Borrowdale; Routledge, Alberti, Mahon, Buzsaky; Helguson, D Connolly.
Second half: Cerny; Ramage, Oastler, Gorkss; Ainsworth, Leigertwood, Balanta, Ephraim; Vine (German 81); Agyemang, Blackstock.
