QPR winger Wright-Phillips happy to take advice from famous Dad

QPR winger Shaun Wright-Phillips is happy to take advice from Dad Ian Wright, the Arsenal legend.

Wright-Phillips ended a two-year goal drought recently and needed the support of Ian when his touch in front of goal deserted him.

"I like to hear his opinions, especially if I have missed a chance - which last year I was doing a lot," he said.

"He would just tell me to do what comes naturally. A lot of my goals have been from instinct and snap shots. Last year I had too much time to think about it.

"If you go for a while without scoring, it does go through your head 'wow, what will I have to do to score?'. It can play on your mind."
