Bothroyd urges QPR to build on victory
The Super Hoops overcame the newly promoted South Coast Outfit on Saturday to record just their third Premier League victory of the season.
January arrival Loic Remy fired the Londoners ahead, before Gaston Ramirez levelled.
But, Bothroyd had the final say, slotting home from close range to move QPR to within four points of safety.
The one time England international has now called on the squad to make the result a turning point in their season, and put together a good run of form to beat the drop:
“Every game is a cup final. We can’t complain and we have to be up for every game.” He is quoted by the Daily Mail.
“We won and we have a massive game next week. if we take our foot off the pace, then this game means nothing.”
Bothroyd made only his second appearance of the season against the Saints, with Harry Redknapp putting his faith in the former Cardiff man as he looks to improve the club’s attacking fortunes.
The 30-year-old was pleased with his performance, but happier with the three points:
“I’ve come in as Bobby Zamora was injured. Obviously I’ve scored but it was one of those where it was all about the squad and you do as well as you can and I was delighted to get a goal.
“It’s great to score goals and it was always about getting the win.”
