Neil Critchley admitted he was disappointed with QPR’s attacking play in the goalless draw at Cardiff.
Rangers remain unbeaten under Critchley, having taken four points from their two matches since he was installed as head coach.
But both teams struggled to create chances during a dull game in the Welsh capital.
“I’m not delighted, I’m sort of satisfied with the point,” Critchley said.
“In the first half I thought we had good control of the game without threatening the goal many times.
“We asked the players to do certain things in the second half to give us a better chance of winning the game.
“We didn’t do that and you have to give credit to Cardiff for improving their game in the second half, but some of that was also down to our poor play.
“It’s a clean sheet, we defended well and gave very few chances away. But we didn’t create many ourselves.
“I said when I got here that we need to improve at both ends of the pitch if we want to be at the top end of the table.
“We’ve improved maybe at one end but not at the other. That takes some time.”
Rangers face Luton on Thursday evening in Critchley’s first home match since taking over.
