Charlie Austin on his favourite goals for QPR this season

Austin comments on goals against Southampton and West Bromwich Albion.

Charlie Austin has said his strike against Southampton earlier on in the season is probably his favourite of the 15 he has scored so far this season. 

Austin has been in excellent form for QPR, having scored last week against Arsenal.

That came in a defeat, like the one against Southampton which caught the eye because of a wonderful touch, turn and volley home against Ronald Koeman's side.

In his blog for Paddy Power, he also reveals another goal he enjoyed, against West Bromwich Albion. 

He said: "The goal away to Southampton was probably one of my favourites of the campaign. It was a typical sticker’s instinct really, to turn and volley. The header against West Brom to seal my hat-trick is obviously special as well. We were 2-0 down at one point and I scored the header with less than five minutes left to bag the hat-trick and win the game.

"If you’re a confident striker the ball will always fall to you in the right positions. If you’re on a run where you can’t stop scoring the ball will always find its way to your feet, whereas if you’re struggling, that’s the time where the ball is a yard either side of you and you don’t catch a break. When you’re confident you’re more willing to take a risk and try something."

There is a good point here about strikers going through a purple patch, and during his first season in the Premier League, we have yet to see Austin low on confidence. He never seems afraid to take the shot on, seems sure of himself during the game and is a constant threat. It remains to be seen whether he could keep it up next season, whether at QPR or elsewhere as other clubs are likely to be keeping an eye on him, and QPR's league status.
