QPR loan winger Andros Townsend has laughed off comparisons with Tottenham teammate Gareth Bale.

Townsend hit a stunning goal in QPR's 3-1 win v Sunderland at the weekend - his first in the Premier League.

He said: "I've been getting stick in training about trying to shoot too much so I hope that goal will shut a few people up.

"People compared it to some of Gareth Bale's recent goals but he is on a different level to me.

"He'll get the ball, run from halfway and then shoot."
