Premier League: QPR v Norwich match preview
A look ahead to the Premier League clash at Loftus Road
Friday 01 February 2013
Unbeaten in their last four league games, although drawing three in that period, QPR will be looking for a victory to maintain their fight against relegation.
In contrast, Norwich have not won in their past seven Premier League fixtures and could do with a second away of the season to keep some distance between themselves and the teams in the relegation zone.
New singings Yoon Suk-Young and Andros Townsend and could make their QPR debuts after finalising their deals mid-week. On loan Tottenham midfielder Jermaine Jenas and club record signing Chris Samba are rated doubtful due to injuries.
New signing Luciano Becchio could make his debut for Norwich after completing his transfer deal with Leeds on deadline day.
PAST THREE MEETINGS…
Norwich 1 (Jackson) QPR 1 (Zamora) Premier League, August 2012
QPR 1 (Barton) Norwich 1 (Pilkington, Morison) Premier League, January 2012
Norwich 2 (Martin, Holt) QPR 1 (Young) Premier League, November 2011
QPR come into this fixture not having won any of the last six against the Canaries.
Despite feeling the need to splash out on Samba, Rangers have only conceded one in their last four Premier league games.
Norwich have played three London clubs (Chelsea, West Ham & Tottenham) in their last six, this will mark the fourth time in seven games.
QPR to win: 1.9
Norwich to win: 4.2
In October 2006, the two teams played a pulsating 3-3 draw at Loftus Road, with Martin Rowlands scoring a brace for QPR, whilst Dion Dublin was on the scoresheet for Norwich.
