Premier League: QPR v Norwich match preview

A look ahead to the Premier League clash at Loftus Road

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.
