Dean Marney is happy to be back in the thick of things at Spurs following a loan switch to QPR that he admits simply didn't work out.
The versatile midfielder returned to the club last week and has since featured in two reserve games - scoring in the first against Southampton.
His one-month stint at Loftus Road was hindered by the suffering of a hamstring injury, but also the fact that QPR's form nosedived shortly before his arrival following a strong first half to the campaign.
"I was really pleased to get back as the QPR thing didn't work out - no fault of my own I don't think," considered Dean. "It just didn't really happen and I'm happy to be back and doing well.
"I was really looking forward to the loan, but I got injured against Bournemouth and had to come off with a hamstring. When I got back I just didn't play and was disappointed.
"I spoke to the manager a couple times and he said I'd play, but it didn't work out like that and the best thing to do was come back to Tottenham and try and push on here.
"To be fair, the manager said he couldn't believe that his team was not doing so well and that he felt sorry for me. Things didn't work out and I'll move on now."
