Sylla eyes more winners after rocking Robins

QPR striker Idrissa Sylla is determined to build on his positive start to life at QPR in the wake of his match-winning goal against Bristol City on Tuesday night.

The Guinea international notched his third goal in Rangers colours against the Robins to hand the Hoops a deserved victory at Loftus Road, to the delight of the 25 year-old front-man.

“It was a really nice feeling to score,” he told www.qpr.co.uk.

“As a striker, my main job is to score goals – and when they are match-winning goals, that is even better!

“We needed the home win and we are now on a nice five-match unbeaten run, which has moved us up the table and given us something to build on.”

Sylla’s goal owed much to Massimo Luongo’s pinpoint cross, as he happily acknowledged.

“It was a lovely ball into the box from Massimo,” he said.

“I knew if I could get across my marker and get a touch it would be a goal, and thankfully that’s what happened.

“To score my first goal at Loftus Road was important – but now I want more!”

Sylla’s strike against the Robins was his second match-winner of the season following his late goal against local rivals Fulham prior to the international break. It’s a habit he is hoping repeats itself over the coming weeks and months.

“I believe in my own ability and I am confident I can score goals in the Championship,” he said.

“It’s a completely different league to the divisions in Belgium and France where I’ve played before, but I feel I am coming to terms with it.

“If I can continue to improve and adjust to the league, I will score goals for QPR – I am sure of that.”

Rangers travel to Sheffield Wednesday on Saturday and Sylla, buoyed by his winner on Tuesday, is in determined mood.

“We want to keep this unbeaten run going now,” he said.

“Sheffield Wednesday are one of the favourites in this league and they’ve made a good start to the season.

“But we want to go there and put on a positive display – which we hope will lead to a positive result.”
