Austin credited with goal against Blackburn

QPR striker Charlie Austin

Charlie Austin has been credited with QPR’s first goal in their recent 2-2 draw with Blackburn.

It was initially recorded as an own goal by Adam Henley as Austin’s shot from an acute angle struck the Rovers defender before going in.

However, the Football League’s dubious goals committee decided that the goal should be awarded to Austin.

It takes the Rangers striker’s tally for the season to seven in eight league appearances.
