"Our squad is very strong this season and that is something which has improved a lot from last year," said Malky Mackay.
"We've brought in 10 new players and of course it was going to take time, but people are beginning to get to know each other.
"We've got to fast track that because this is an unforgiving division. Another clean sheet away from home is really pleasing.
"The first half was scrappy but we kicked on and showed two moments of quality. From then on we were comfortable.
"That's three wins on the trot. It's something we've got to try and do if we're going to be competitive, putting runs together."
The one blott on the landscape was an injury to Nicky Maynard.
"I'm delighted with the way Nicky has adapted to the team, so I was really disappointed for him. Hopefully it's not serious. We've got a good medical team down in Cardiff."
Kenny Jackett insisted his side were unlucky.
"It's fine margins that win and lose games. We weren't a million miles away but ultimately we've lost a game and that's a frustration," said Jackett.
"It's all about assessing where we are. It's a small squad and everyone is focused towards finding the winning equation which we need.
"We were the better team in the first half, we were just lacking that final ball. We got into good positions and had a good foothold but you have to see it through.
"Two quick goals at the start of the second half gave us a mountain to climb. We didn't close the ball down for either goal well enough. We offered them both very good shooting positions when we had enough people behind the ball.
"We need clean sheets - that will make us competitive enough to pick up points on a regular basis."
