Taarabt keen to turn scoring ways into QPR wins

Adel Taarabt admits it is nice to score from an individual viewpoint but is keen to turn that form into victories for his club.

The Moroccan playmaker has scored in the past two Premier League games for QPR but the West London side has lost on both occasions and he insists he would rather be contributing to winning teams than netting for no apparent reason.

"I was pleased with the goals, but it's more important to win games," he told the club's official website. "At the moment, we aren't doing that.

"Scoring is good for my confidence, but it would be better if I scored and we won.

"We just need to start winning games and going up the table, bit by bit. Then I'll be more happy.

"It's time for us to stand up and be counted. That's what I'm trying to do.

"Now I have to win games for my team. I know I have the ability to help the team get our first win. I'm going to try and do that and be a leader.

"We just want to win games. I think we'll be fine when we start to do that."
