PATRICK Agyemang is anxious to play his part in boosting QPR's meagre goal tally after returning from a month out with a groin injury.
Rangers have averaged less than a goal a game in the Championship and needed a late Gavin Mahon header to break down Cardiff's 10 men on Saturday.
Like Mahon, Agyemang was a second-half substitute against Cardiff and told the Times: "I felt good - in training and the reserves I've been feeling sharp and now I just want to get back in the side and get us up there.
"Last season we were scoring regularly, but this season we haven't. I think that's just confidence really and it'll change the more games we play.
"I started the season with the aim of getting as many goals as possible and injuries have restricted me, but I'm fit now so hopefully I can contribute some goals and maybe some assists.
"Now I just want to stay injury-free and give 100 per cent. We need to pull together and get the results, starting with three more points against Burnley."
Agyemang has only started twice for Rangers since the opening day of the season, finding the net just once so far.
QPR missed an opportunity to bolster their strike force last week when they pulled out of a loan move for Sunderland's Michael Chopra, who joined former club Cardiff instead.
Rangers baulked at Chopra's £20,000 a week salary - however, the Times understands that the club are already paying one of their recent signings well in excess of that wage.
