Rangers will be happy to have come away with a point from Selhurst Park on Saturday - but must wonder where their next away goal is coming from.
They have gone nearly 10 hours without netting on their travels - Martin Rowlands' winner at Norwich on September 17 was the last success.
They have scored only twice now in 10 away games, which is the worst record in the Football League, but at least they remain in touch with the play-off places. Only two points separate them from Preston, who occupy that coveted sixth place.
Rangers might have returned from south London with all three points, but Heidar Helguson, on as a second half sub at the start of his loan spell from Bolton, missed QPR's best chance.
Palace came into the match on the back of three successive wins, however, and new boss Paulo Sousa was happy enough with the afternoon's work. He is certainly not overly concerned just yet by the team's failure to score in six successive away games.
"Hopefully, I will give confidence to the players and that will create more scoring chances," the Portuguese coach said. "This team will grow and develop in the future and we will have more opportunities."
Rangers take on leaders Wolves at Loftus Road next before aiming to break their away duck at Sheffield Wednesday next Tuesday.
