Wells - No Goals Was Starting to Get to Me

Nahki Wells has admitted that his lack of goals at QPR was 'starting to get to him'.

The striker had failed to hit the back of the net since arriving at Loftus Road in August but broke his barren run with a fine finish against Sheffield Wednesday on Tuesday night.

While Wells is relieved to get his first QPR goal under his belt, he says he's putting pressure on himself to find the net regularly from now on.

Speaking to the club website, Wells said: "It's a great feeling.

"Of course, It's been something that over the last few weeks has stated to get to me a bit - you know, knowing that I need to score goals.

"I've been pulled out of the side in the last game or two and I can't deny how important that goal is for me, for the team and for us going forward. Hopefully it's the start of what I'd like to think will be a run of goals."

Despite struggling to get on the scoresheet before Tuesday night, it was a real sign of the team spirit as all of the QPR team celebrated his strike with him - something which has been truly appreciated by the striker.

Speaking about the support of his teammates, Wells said: "It's been great. The players, the management, the fans understand what I have to offer and what my contribution has been so far.

The nine things that Steve McClaren has improved at QPR since arriving at Loftus Road.

"They would have thought there'd have been more goals but I've contributed in many other ways. It's important that I get the goals and that everything comes together collectively.

"For most of my appearances my performances have been very good - a few games under par but that's football - my job's to come in, score goals and help the team win and as long as I do that I'm happy."
