NORWICH v QPR - MATCH PREVIEW

Looking ahead to Saturday's fixture at Carrow Road ...

RANGERS will be aiming to bounce back from an opening day defeat to forget, when they make the trip to Carrow Road – the home of Norwich City – this weekend.

Mark Hughes will demand an immediate response from his side in the wake of their 5-0 loss to Swansea City, but the same can also be said of new Canaries boss Chris Hughton.

Norwich also suffered a five-goal defeat – to Fulham – last Saturday, leaving both sides rooted towards the foot of the table.

However, both manager’s will be fully aware that one early season defeat wont ultimately govern their fate this season, and with the attacking options both sides have at their disposal, a free-flowing affair is expected in East Anglia.

Rangers could hand a debut to new signing Jose Bosingwa, whilst the Canaries could blood defensive duo Sebastien Bassong and Javier Garrido for the first time.


The Numbers Game

*26,034 - The capacity of the Canaries’ Carrow Road home.

*84 - The number of points incurred by Norwich on their way to finishing runners-up to QPR in the 2010/11 season.

*10-2 - The Canaries’ widest victory margin in the league against Coventry City in 1930.

*35 - Mark Bowen’s club record for most international caps with Wales.
