Henry insists on goal of the season re-count

GOALSCORER Karl Henry has called for a stewards enquiry into the voting process behind QPR’s Goal of the Season award.

Junior Hoilett picked up the seasonal award for his goal against Brentford ahead of Saturday’s 1-0 win against Bristol City.

But Henry staked a late claim for the trophy after his wonder winner against the Robins handed Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink’s side all three points. 

“I think we need a stewards enquiry,” joked Henry at full-time who scored his first QPR goal in over 26 months on Saturday. 

“Someones head has got to roll, you can’t have the vote before the last game of the season! 

“All jokes aside it is always nice to score and it was good to finish the season on a high note.”

 

Henry’s winner came in the 63rd minute but the R’s had the crossbar and Matt Ingram to thank for ensuring they went in level at the break.

Bristol City enjoyed the better of the opening half in sweltering end of season conditions and Henry admitted it took an adjustment at the break for QPR to get a foothold in the match. 

I know it is that time of year but the weather hasn't been great for a while and in that heat it is tough,” he said. 

I thought Bristol City coped better than we did and got on the ball and the manager said at half-time that we needed to get at them higher up the pitch which we did. 

In this league there are teams that if you give them time then they will play. If you give them the impetus at your home ground then they will start knocking the ball around and getting confidence and before you know if you are on the back foot at home. 

The gaffer just reminded us at half-time that we needed to go and take the ball off them and I felt second half for the first 20 minutes it felt like we could take the ball off them at will in places we could hurt them.”
