Ian Holloway said QPR’s performance against promotion-chasing Leeds showed how much his side have improved.
Rangers produced an excellent display and were unlucky not to win at Elland Road, where the expectant home fans grew increasingly frustrated as the visitors dominated the second half.
“I know how difficult it is at this time of year to please a crowd of that size,” said R’s boss Holloway.
“They’d have had one look at the table and thought they could beat us. But they don’t really look at the form table – we’re doing much better.
“People will come here and try to park the bus, but I think you could see that we didn’t do that.
“We caused them some problems and I’m pleased with the group. It was a really tough game and I’m really proud of my team.”
