Bobby: No Sentiment

Bobby Zamora is hoping to inch a little bit closer to his goal target at Loftus Road this weekend - and put one over on one of his old bosses.

Bobby is up against Ian Holloway, who managed him at Bristol Rovers earlier in his career, and he says:

"His teams are always well organised and know what to do - they have found their feet this year.

"He just wants winners; people who can work hard and run hard - he knows his stuff and how to get players fired up.

"He has a laugh at times but he can be deadly serious and you have to be switched on in no uncertain terms."

Bobby is determined to add to his tally in west London and he adds:

"I always set a target of 10 to 15 and anything else is a bonus; I have had a couple of starts that I have been quite pleased with though obviously I would like to begin more matches - and get a few more goals.

"It is hard coming off the bench but if I get the chance tomorrow I will look to put a goal away.

"I have scored three goals in my starts this season; I am happy with that and hopefully I can keep it going.

"I definitely think I could get 20 goals if I play every week but it is a task just to get into that starting line-up."

Bobby has competition from Marlon Harewood and Teddy Sheringham, of course, and he adds:

"I would be delighted to play with either of the two but with Teddy injured hopefully I will get the chance to play alongside Marlon.

"Last year I was finding my feet and getting to know the lads and this year I am really happy with the way things are going - I think we will be up there at the end of the season.

"Everyone is settled now and hopefully we can crack on from here."

Bobby is confident of victory even though QPR sit one place higher in the table, and he concludes:

"We don't see ourselves as the underdogs - we know what we can do and if we can put it all together we should come away with a win."

Bobby knows that competition up front could increase if youngsters Moses Ashikodi and Greg Pearson continue to develop, and he enthuses:

"They are good lads and I have played a couple of games alongside them in the reserves; they work hard, want to learn - and that is what they are doing."
