Cardiff City manager Paul Trollope looks on against QPR
Trollope's men continued their unenviable goalless start to the season.
Having achieved a nil-nil draw away at Birmingham on the opening day of the season, Cardiff suffered a 1-0 EFL Cup loss in midweek against Bristol Rovers.
Cardiff seemed no nearer to breaking their deadlock against QPR, managing only one shot on target in 90 minutes of football.
In contrast, QPR were able to break the deadlock after 76 minutes via the head of ex-Cardiff defender Steven Caulker, before Tjarron Chery added a second from the spot with only five minutes to go.
Former Bluebird Caulker rises highest to open the scoring
Trollope admitted to WalesOnline that his side's impotency in front of goal is a worry.
He said: “It's disappointing. We scored well through pre-season, created chances, our strikers scored goals.
"But it's been three frustrating games, at Birmingham especially in the first half we created a number of good chances which we didn't manage to convert."
Cardiff's lack of goals only serves to exacerbate errors made by the defence, with both QPR goals coming from individual mistakes.
“It was two disappointing goals from our point of view," Trollope added. "It was two poor decisions from our defenders."
Suffice to say Cardiff fans are not happy with the club's start to the season with many taking to social media to give their verdict on the Bluebirds.
@CardiffCityFC 5 hours without a goal. No ambition already. Tan has no interest anymore. Going nowhere, especially with him at the realms— Thomas Owens (@ThomasOwens23) August 14, 2016
@CardiffCityFC Another year of false hope by the looks of things. Not even a shot on target and no goals in three games. Get a striker!— Jake Atkins (@tkins_) August 14, 2016
Yes we need a striker but I don't think that's the only thing needed to fix this squad after watching that— Cardiff City Fans (@CardiffCityCCFC) August 14, 2016
That was so bad for so many reasons, but the worst thing was that it felt like Solskjaer was back. It looked like it was made up on the spot— Scott Johnson (@roathboy) August 14, 2016
The Bluebirds will have the opportunity to put the ball in the back of the net when they take on Blackburn Rovers on Wednesday evening.
Rovers currently lie in 24th place, having conceded seven goals in the opening two games.
If they don't score then, they might never.
