QPR v Norwich City: Can the Hoops pick up only their third league win of the season?


Bookmark and Share

QPR held the champions Manchester City to a goalless draw in midweek, thanks mainly to the heroics of Brazilian shot stopper Julio Cesar. That point ensured they kept their unbeaten league record in 2013 going. Today they host Chris Hughton's Norwich City, who have managed just two points from a possible 21. 

So will this be the day the Hoops register only their third league win of the campaign?

Harry Redknapp was busy on transfer deadline day, bringing in the powerful defender Chris Samba and Spurs midfielder Jermaine Jenas. Their experience could prove crucial in Rangers' fight to beat the drop. One man who want be on the pitch is West Brom's Peter Odemwingie, although it has yet to be confirmed whether or not he will in the crowd to support his boys!

Norwich City have gone right off the boil in recent weeks. They bowed out of the FA Cup at home to non-league Luton Town, were thrashed by Liverpool 5-0 at Anfield and you have to go back to December 15 when they beat Wigan 2-1 at home for their last league win. With the likes of QPR, Reading, Southampton and Newcastle all picking up point in midweek, the Canaries will be anxiously looking over their shoulder.

The Canaries failed in their attempts to sign Gary Hooper from Celtic but Luciano Becchio should be a great addition from Leeds United. The Argentinian always has a knack of being in the right place at the right time and it will be interesting to see how he performs in the Premier League.

QPR haven't defeated Norwich in their past six attempts. Martin Rowlands was the hero of the hour for the Hoops in their last victory back in 2008, but can Loic Remy or Chris Samba write their names into their record books or will the Canaries be on song again?
