QPR manager Ian Holloway has criticised his side's display, saying the first half performance was "the worst he's seen".
The Hoops played out a dull 0-0 draw against Burton Albion, and Holloway was frustrated that his side weren't able to play their natural game.
Speaking after the match, he said: "I thought that’s the worst first half performance I’ve seen, we played into their hands.
"If I’d known they were going to do that i’d have changed the team and made about five or six changes, which you can end up getting criticised for sometimes.
"But I knew those lads wouldn’t have been as well-rehearsed, and you can’t always start on the front foot throwing punch after punch just because it’s someone you’re expected to beat.
"We’re notoriously rubbish at beating anybody that we’re expected to beat at QPR and unfortunately the changes I made at half time, which is unlike me, were necessary.
"It wasn’t the fault of the two players that I brought off but I wanted to win the game.
"In my defence I put on Matt Smith, I put on Sylla and I’ve put on Bright Osayi-Samuel, so ask yourself, was I happy with what I saw in the first half? No. Did I try and change it? Yeah. Did it work? Almost; because we pinned them in, had more and more chances but unfortunately the first 45 minutes we didn’t get it right.
"Yeni is a much better player than he showed there, and on the balance of everybody else, where Jamie (Mackie) was, where Pav (Wszolek) was, he needs to be able to run and if they’ve already blocked all the spaces and there’s no space in behind Pav, so I brought him back 15 yards.
"You’ve got to have ways of breaking things down. I’m pleased with the clean sheet, I’m pleased with the defenders and I think they stuck to their task."
