Queens Park Rangers striker Bobby Zamora admits he was pleased to open his tally at Loftus Road but would trade goals for points.

The former Fulham attacker opened the scoring for QPR on Saturday as they took the lead in their home clash against Wolves.

However, with Matthew Jarvis levelling for the visitors before Kevin Doyle netted a 71st minute winner, Zamora was left ruing the missed opportunity.

Despite being delighted to have got off the mark with his new club, following his switch from Craven Cottage in the January transfer window, England international Zamora admits he would gladly give up his goal in return for a win.

Zamora is currently 13/2 to score first and 12/1 to score a brace in QPR's big game against Blackburn at the weekend! Bet now.

Pleased

"I was pleased to get on the score-sheet but I would have happily traded my goal for three points," he told the club's official website.

"It was nice to score and obviously doing it early in my QPR career was pleasing. It gets that off your back and now I'm hoping to score a few more."

The 16th placed side have won just once in 12 game and sit only one point above the drop zone with 21 points to their name.

And with a trip to fellow strugglers Blackburn, who currently occupy second bottom, on Saturday, Zamora recognises the significance of the game and the challenge his side face if they are to retain their Premier League status.

"I am looking forward to the next fixture now," he added. "We go from one big game straight into another but every game we play between now and the end of the season is massive for us."
