Reading and QPR played out a goalless draw in Saturday's Championship match.
QPR, who scked manager Iain Dowie on Friday, forced good second-half saves from Marcus Hahnemann through Daniel Parejo and Akos Buszaky.
Reading went close to taking the lead just before the break with Radek Cerny saving Noel Hunt's close-range header.
QPR were also lucky to survive two good penalty appeals while Kalifa Cisse's header almost grabbed the win for Reading late on.
Reading manager Steve Coppell:
"A 0-0 draw is not the end of the world. As people famously say, we can
extract the positives. We tried to win the game.
"We can criticise some of the things we did but as long as I have that kind of
effort every game I won't be too disappointed."
QPR caretaker manager Gareth Ainsworth:
"There are discussions about the team and discussions about
"Flavio has put a lot of money in the club and he wants to
know how his investments are going.
"Already we have made a point that we are going to be meeting regularly, not
just with Flavio but with the other people who have put their money in the club.
"I have the final input on who goes out there and talk my way through the
meetings justifying every player. But with a performance like that today the
team picks itself, which is a great problem to have."
