Wilfried Bony has found the net six times this season and has scored more Premier League goals in 2014 than any other player

Swansea City striker Wilfried Bony says he does not mind failing to score as long as his side wins.

The Ivory Coast striker was a constant threat in Tuesday's 2-0 win against Queens Park Rangers.

He came close to scoring several times, hitting the post and setting up Swansea's opening goal.

"There were a couple of chances. I tried to score but it didn't work, but what is more important was to win," said Bony.

"It's good for me, it's good for the team.

"If I don't score, I can create chances for other players to score."

Swansea 2-0 QPR: Garry Monk says win was most complete performance

Swansea are seventh in the Premier League after the win over Harry Redknapp's side, and are now just three points off the top four.

Manager Garry Monk described it as a "complete performance" by his side, who had to wait until the 78th minute for the breakthrough against the Londoners.

Rangers' goalkeeper Robert Green made a string of excellent saves as the Swans dominated.

It looked as though struggling QPR were going to hold on for a point when Green tipped Bony's well-struck volley around the post.

But the 25-year-old striker helped to finally break QPR's resistance, threading the ball through to midfielder Ki Sung-Yueng, whose precise shot from a tight angle arrowed in off the far post.

Despite their lofty league position, Bony says the club are just focusing on their next match away to West Ham on Sunday, 7 December.

"It was very important for us to win, so we are happy," said Bony.

"We take the games step by step. We don't care what other people say.

"We just care about what we do and our performances. We just focus on our way of play."
