Nedum Onuoha admitted it was a rare goal for him on Saturday in the 5-1 thrashing of Rotherham United.
The centre-back grabbed the fifth of the afternoon in additional time at Loftus Road to wrap up a fantastic performance and result.
The fact that QPR were cruising against the Championship's bottom side allowed Onuoha to make a trip into the opposition's box for a set-piece.
And he duly converted at the back post from the free-kick delivery out on the left.
"We were OK in the first half and we still managed to have the lead, so going into the second half we knew we could do more," said Onuoha.
"We did do more and thankfully we were rewarded for that.
“For me, things have changed, I don’t really go up for set-pieces any more.
"My big job from set-pieces tends to be stopping counter-attacks and we have been better at them, so I'm happy to do that job.
"But on this occasion I was allowed to go forward and it’s always nice to score."
