Championship Play-Off Final Snapshot: Bobby Zamora Sends QPR Up With Their Only Shot On Target (With Video)

By Chris Wright

Having gone down to ten men and scraped through the last half-an-hour, QPR scored in the 90th minute of the Championship play-off final to secure promotion back to the Premier League.

Bobby Zamora scored the only goal of the game with QPR’s only shot on target, clipping home with his left foot from 12 yards after a naff touch from Derby captain Richard Keogh (who was absolutely inconsolable after the final whistle) serendipitously let the big striker in.

That’s QPR roughly £134million better off!

As for Zamora, he’s gaining a bit of a reputation as a play-off winning specialist – it was a goal from Big Bobby that settled the 2005 final in West Ham’s favour too.

Not a bad knack to have!

    uRRRRRRRRs!…..Wonderful calmness under pressure with that snapshot. Zamora’s muscle memory came into play and great to see him think in an instant by opening the body up as well. Felt for Derby defender Keogh’s pain at the end.

    Smash and grab indeed…plus great pedigree from Zamora in the playoffs as you said from West Ham in 05. Great to see QPR back as Tony Fernandes is such a great and down to earth Chairman. Hopefully he will have learnt from his first stint in the Premiership. Superhoops!

    Well done QPR!

    Will they keep Zamora? I would say so.
