Washington 'buzzing' with crucial goal

QPR striker Conor Washington admitted he was 'buzzing' with the R's 2-0 victory over Nottingham Forest at Loftus Road on Saturday afternoon.

Washington opened the scoring against the Tricky Trees in W12 with a fine 49th minute finish, before Joel Lynch set the seal on a big win for the R's on the hour.

Washington told www.qpr.co.uk: "It was such an important win.

"We knew what we needed to do and when we came off the pitch and saw the other results, it shows just how important it was for us.

"It was a crucial victory for us to get over the line.

"The boys were all buzzing at full-time."

After a goalless first period, Rangers came out of the blocks in super-quick style at the start of the second half and Washington admitted: "The first half was tight.

"It was end-to-end but it felt a bit nervy to be honest.

"But we really took control at the start of the second half.

"We created a few chances before I scored and then Lynchy got a second soon after and that was enough to see us get a crucial three points."

Goal

On his goal, Washington added: "I wasn't sure how the ball got to me to be honest, but once it did I was confident I would finish it!

"I knew I could take a touch and draw the keeper, and thankfully it worked out that way.

"It was just what we needed and gave us a big lift.

"The second goal was the buffer we needed.

"I was buzzing when that hit the back of the net because I felt a second goal was crucial.

"I thought we saw the game out well after that and winning with a clean sheet in our final home game was a bonus."

It was a crucial victory for us to get over the line.
