QPR striker Charlie Austin will be first with the ball for R's next penalty after Hull City miss ...

STRIKER Charlie Austin has insisted he would have no second thoughts about taking another penalty after his spot kick miss against Hull City on Saturday.

The QPR forward had the opportunity to rescue a point for the R’s on his top-flight bow from 12-yards yesterday.

However, Hull City keeper Allan McGregor thwarted the 25-year-old by saving low to his right.

But despite the disappointment, Austin will be first in the line again should another opportunity present itself he has confirmed. 

“I’m going to go back this week and work on it even more and as soon as we get another penalty I will be the first one to pick the ball up,” revealed Austin who finished last season as Rangers top scorer on 20-goals.

“I was confident when I picked the ball up. I was thinking about the Wigan play-off game when I stepped up at the same end. I thought ‘lets go the same way.’

“I thought I was going to get my first Premier League goal, but unfortunately the keeper saved it.

“For a moment I thought that it was coming back to me but his trailing leg has come round and kicked it out.”

Loic Remy partnered Austin in attack for the first time since the Frenchman’s proposed move to Liverpool fell through.

The pair linked up well throughout the 90 minutes and Austin is looking forward to seeing that relationship continue to flourish over the coming weeks.

“Other than training that was the first time we have played together and I thought we linked up very well,” he admitted.

“We worked well but unfortunately we didn’t get the goals but I am sure we can get the goals.”

QPR return to action next Sunday when they travel to Tottenham Hotspur’s White Hart Lane, 1:30pm kick-off.
