Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin wants to create more chances.

Queens Park Rangers striker Charlie Austin has told The Sun that he needs to create more chances.

Austin is one of the best strikers in the Championship and showed that he is of Premier League quality last season.

The former Burnley man scored 18 goals in 35 Premier League appearances during the 2014-15 campaign, although he failed to prevent QPR from suffering relegation from the English top flight.

The 26-year-old has scored six goals in eight Championship games for Rangers so far this season.

Austin has said that he can still improve his game and wants to create more chances for his teammates.

“You’re never at the top of your game until you’re Ronaldo or Messi,” the Englishman told The Sun. “There are still bits I can improve on, like creating more chances.

“I need to get a certain amount of goals, but I never set targets. I’m delighted with the start we’ve had and to help the team to 12 points.”

Austin created 23 chances in 35 Premier League games last season, but he has already crafted 13 chances in eight Championship appearances this campaign.

That is certainly an improvement, and it seems that the Rangers striker is certainly doing more than just bang in the goals.

QPR will be looking to finish in the top six of the Championship this season and stand a chance of going back up to the Premier League.

The London outfit will take on Fulham away from home at Craven Cottage in the Championship tonight.
