DJ Campbell has vowed to come back to Loftus Road a stronger player after his loan spell at Ipswich Town.
The self-professed QPR fan is on loan at Portman Road for three months - making an immediate impact by scoring against Cardiff City on his debut.
The journey to the top for the 30-year-old has hardly been typical, citing DHL and Yakult among his employers during a difficult non-league spell.
Having burst onto the scene with Yeading then Brentford, Campbell's career has suffered more peaks and troughs than a run-away roller-coaster.
From youth team football at Aston Villa and QPR to non-league, back on the scene with the aforementioned Brentford before suffering a lapse at Birmingham and Leicester City respectively.
His career resurrected once more by Ian Holloway at Blackpool where he netted some important top flight goals - sparking a deal to take him full circle back to W12.
Sadly, change in management, injuries etc have all conspired against his progress, but now he's back with a bang and netting a debut goal at Portman Road.
DJ's appetite for goal makes him a very useful commodity, particularly at Championship level - which Holloway understands and Jewell will undoubtedly reap benefit from.
Campbell's pre-season form was good for QPR, but was never really entertained by Mark Hughes as a potential 25-man squad member, which is a tad disappointing considering his lack of opportunity to date.
So the big question then, can DJ come back and contribute to the cause in January? - With Andrew Johnson injured and wide-spread spending due to be tempered, this is a very real possibility.
13 goals in 31 games for Blackpool nearly had them safe in the top flight and would certainly be most welcomed in a bid to forge a mid-table finish.
If it was a question of class then DJ has shown he can do it over the course of a season - will Mark Hughes relent on his initial thoughts and allow a place for Campbell?
A few more goals with the Tractor Boys wouldn't harm the cause in the slightest...
