Jimmy Floyd Hasselbaink has told Queens Park Rangers’ official site that he learnt two things from his first match in charge.
Hasselbaink was in the dugout at the first time at Loftus Road for the R’s 0-0 draw with Burnley on Saturday, and the Dutch boss was pleased with the support he received from the fans in attendance, along with the desire his players showed.
"I learnt a lot today," he said. "I learnt that QPR has magnificent support. I learnt that we have a team that is willing - willing to work for each other.
"There were a lot of positives to take from the game. We were committed, we did a lot of things right."
Hasselbaink’s QPR side showed signs of promise, but they lacked the cutting edge required to get past Burnley.
Sean Dyche’s side are a tough team to break down and QPR just couldn’t find a way past Tom Heaton in the visitor’s goal.
They will be pleased that their defensive improvements have continued though, and that will give Hasselbaink a solid platform to build on in the weeks ahead.
QPR have now only conceded once in their last five outings, which is a huge turnaround from Chris Ramsey’s time in charge.
QPR’s draw with Burnley leaves the side sitting in 13th place in the Championship table.
