Queens Park Rangers boss Paulo Sousa believed that while the R`s played well they need to be more assertive in front of goal.
The Portuguese legend saw the R`s go down 1-0 away to Sheffield Wednesday at a bitterly cold Hillsborough, despite having several opportunities to break their away hoodoo.
The Rangers boss believed that his side deserved a share of the spoils if not more.
'I feel we should have got something out of the match, these are the games you have to win.' Sousa told QPR.co.uk
'When you have excellent opportunities and you don't take them then, in football, you don't win. We need to be more aggressive in front of goal.
'We created a lot opportunities once again, but the last moment didn't come and we paid for not making the most of them.'
After being spurned infront of goal once more with a mixture of poor finishing and inspired goalkeeping, the R`s extended a run to eight games without scoring on the road, making it in excess of 777 minutes of football on the road without hitting the back of the net.
However Rangers boss Paulo Sousa believes that it is a matter of time before Rangers come out firing.
He said: 'I believe my players have the ability too overcome this hurdle. We are creating the chances and the goals will come. I'd be more concerned if we weren't creating the openings in the first instance.'
'As the game wore on without us scoring, it affected our confidence and gave Wednesday more energy and enthusiasm.'
When Peter Ramage`s pin-point cross to the far post saw Heidar Helguson impeded, the R`s had a chance to stop the rot from the penalty spot, but Martin Rowlands` powerful drive down the middle was stopped by the legs of former Derby County stopper Lee Grant.
Sousa has every confidence that Rangers` Captain Marvel will be ready to take the next kick should it come round.
He added 'Of course it was a great opportunity for him to score, but I have every confidence in Martin, and he will bounce back.'
