Zamora hoping for QPR stay

QPR striker Bobby Zamora revealed that he hopes to have done enough to earn himself a new contract at the club, and play Premier League football once again.

The 33-year-old's current deal expires in the summer, and has been given no assurances that he will be offered a new contract by the R's boss Harry Redknapp.

And the former Fulham hitman knows that Saturday's play-off final could be his last for the club, and is fully aware a fine performance against Derby could put him in the shop window.

"Fingers crossed I can help QPR into the Premier League and get another contract here," Zamora told the London Evening Standard.

"I would like to stay but it is good timing that I am doing well at the moment and people are watching.

"It is good to get myself back out there to let everybody know that I am fit and healthy. "

Despite entering the twilight years of his career, Zamora believes he still has what it takes to be a success in the Premier League.

"My body feels good and the last couple of months have been brilliant for me," Zamora added.

"I have a lot of experience as well, so I could still do a job in the top flight."
