Radek Cerny is delighted with the manner in which his time at Queens Park Rangers has begun.
The Czech keeper joined the Championship outfit on a free transfer this summer, and helped his new club to a 2-1 victory over Barnsley on the opening day.
He admits that there are exciting times ahead for a club bankrolled by Formula One magnates Flavio Briatore and Bernie Ecclestone, but has been impressed by the cautious approach adopted by the owners so far.
"They said that they are not trying to build a second Chelsea, filling the squad with expensive players," Cerny told Denik Sport.
"They think that the club should operate normally and they will take a sensible course.
"But our ambitions are clear. We want to finish in the top six, which means the play-offs.
"Although, if we finished second we would go up automatically, and that would be better.
"To reach the play-offs we need to pick up 10 points from every six games.
"After each block we will analyse where we are and go on from there."
Cerny also revealed that he will need time to adapt to life in the second tier of English football, having previously experienced life in the Premier League at Tottenham.
"People say the Championship is a typically English competition," he said.
"The Premier League is certainly different. Here, the games are played in an up and down tempo.
"I think that happened on Saturday. Mainly in the first 20 minutes where the commitment was enormous. You don't often see that in modern football."
