Patrick Agyemang won the praise of QPR boss Luigi De Canio after his double saw off Southampton 3-2 at St Mary's.
The electric striker is in a rich vain of form since arriving at Loftus Road from Preston and has quickly established himself as a fans' favourite.
Agyemang's tally since joining QPR is seven goals in five Championship games, but De Canio admits the credit for his astute signing lay elsewhere.
He said: "Patrick is doing really well, along with the rest of the team. He came to my attention because Gianni Paladini, our chairman, suggested him to me as I was not familiar with a lot of English players.
"Southampton are a good team with good players but the behaviour of the QPR players, even after we let in an early goal, was excellent. We regained the right mentality and dominated the game."
Southampton, who this week confirmed Jason Dodd and John Gorman will be in charge until the end of the season, find themselves moving in the opposite direction having slipped to 18th.
And Dodd concedes the club's poor form and lack of a goal threat is a real worry.
"It's a worry that we are not scoring goals," said Dodd.
"We don't seem to be punishing teams and we made three individual errors, which cost us the match.
"I'm not going to blame individuals, we are collectively to blame."
