The result saw Forest lift themselves back into the top six while condemning QPR to back-to-back defeats but Davies is refusing to get carried away.
"Don't get concerned about being in the top six or not being in the top six, it is the Championship, it is a marathon. Let's look at the stats in March," Davies said.
"We thoroughly deserved three points, regardless of the second goal. We will enjoy the three points and look forward to another difficult game.
"The press' aim is promotion, we have never mentioned that, we are a progressing club and we know ourselves that we will continue to work on that progress.
"There is no doubt that we have been playing well at home, but not getting what we deserved.
"In the first half we were excellent, we created a host of chances again and we should have had the game dead and buried by half time.
"We will look at the transfer window, we will see what we can do in the transfer window and then look forward to the run in at the end of the season.
"We are just another club that is looking forward to January, when it comes to strengthening. We are no different to any other club."
QPR assistant manager Kevin Bond admitted his side under-performed and refused to use the second goal, which was allowed to stand despite the assistant referee flagging for an offside decision, as an excuse.
"The damage was done in the first half," he said. "They got after us and stopped us from playing. Really, we never laid a glove on them in the first half.
"I saw the linesman put his flag up and I think our players stopped, because they expected a decision. But the referee didn't give the decision, Forest played on and we didn't.
"That is about the long and the short of it. Our lads should not have stopped but there you have it.
"The second goal was a consequence of us chasing the game. The damage was done before that."
