LEE Cook believes he is finally beginning to regain match sharpness for the first time since he returned to QPR in the summer.

Complications following a knee operation meant that the winger never made a competitive appearance for Fulham after his £2.5m transfer from Rangers a year earlier.

Despite his lack of match practice, Cook has featured in all bar one of QPR's games since he rejoined the club on a year-long loan and the 26-year-old admitted: "People have had to be patient with me.

"I knew it was going to take a while to get into my stride but, in the last three or four weeks, I've been feeling back to my old self in training, doing some sharp, quick turns.

"I feel good now and I'm hoping to get back into the swing of things and do what I do best."

DEFENSIVE trio Damien Delaney, Kaspars Gorkss and Damion Stewart will all be back in international action this week.

Delaney has been named in the Republic of Ireland squad to face Cyprus in a World Cup qualifier at Croke Park next Wednesday.

Gorkss, meanwhile, links up with the Latvia squad for their qualifiers away to Switzerland on Saturday and at home to Israel four days later.

Stewart's Jamaica side are in action against Mexico and Honduras.
