Queens Park Rangers attacker Jamie Mackie hopes his goal from close range on Saturday against Aston Villa can kickstart a run of form in front of goal, writes Mark Ritson.
The 32-year-old put the Hoops ahead in the first half at Loftus Road after a scramble inside the six-yard area following a corner.
There were suggestions it may have come off another QPR player before it hit the back of the net, but Mackie insists it was his.
"I felt it was definitely my goal and that's what you're there to do," he said.
"You're not going to shield it in for someone else, I'm a forward player wanting to score goals.
"The lads are happy for me to score. You want your forward players scoring and hopefully I can go on a little run now."
Looking at the season so far, Mackie is satisfied with the progress made and believes QPR can climb the table to put pressure on the top six.
"Before the season, people might have said we'd struggle but so far we're kind of in touch of the play-offs which could be seen as over-achieving," he said.
"But as a squad we believe in ourselves and we're in a position where we should be looking up.
"We're improving all the time and the manager is doing a lot of work with us and trying to make us a better side, along with us trying to get results at the same time, so it's just getting a balance at the moment."
