thumbnail Hello,

The Reds finally converted a dominant home display into a win against QPR, but could only manage a single goal from Uruguayan and the defender wants more players to get scoring.

Liverpool full back Glen Johnson insists a big win for the Reds “isn’t far off” following several positive performances.

The Merseyside outfit had failed to win at home in four matches before finally converting a convincing display into a victory at the weekend, with Luis Suarez getting the only goal of the game in a 1-0 win over QPR.

Johnson feels certain that the Reds will soon be getting the results he thinks the team's performances merit, suggesting it has been unlucky in front of goal.

"I definitely get the feeling a big win isn't far off," he told the club’s official website. "We're coming close. We had so many chances against QPR to get a healthy scoreline and on another day with a bit more luck you score 80 percent of your chances and you find yourself 6-0 up.

"As long as you win the game it doesn't really matter but the way we are playing it's coming. We only got the one goal against QPR but three points was the most important thing. There was relief getting back to winning ways at home. It's always nice to bounce back after a defeat and that's what good teams do."

Johnson has also urged his teammates to take the pressure off of Suarez and add to the club’s goal tally themselves, admitting that they cannot afford to rely on one man alone.

"When you are playing and winning, nobody cares who scores but the more players who are scoring the better it is for the team," he added. "You don't want to be relying on the same players."
