Mackie admits last Norwich trip still raw

JAMIE Mackie admits that QPR’s performance in the R’s last trip to Carrow Road will be at the forefront of everyones minds on Wednesday night.

Rangers were second best in Norfolk on their final outing of the 2016/17 season, as they fell to a poor 4-0 defeat against the Canaries.

And speaking on this weeks episode of The Loftcast, Mackie said everyone is keen to put that right tomorrow.

“I think anytime you go to a team the next time after you’ve been beaten so heavily it is in the forefront of players and fans minds alike,” said the Rangers attacker who scored his first goal of the season in Saturday’s 1-1 draw with Sheffield Wednesday.

“It is an opportunity early on to rectify what has gone wrong in the past, but we are going there treating it like a normal game. We are going there to get three points.

“The lads are in a good place confidence wise but it is a very tough place to go.

“It’s not that we just didn't play great last time. They are a good side and are going to beat a lot of teams this season.

“It’s not an easy game but I think the fans appreciate that and all our players and staff do.”

QPR’s start to the new season has seen them take four points from six in the Championship and also a Carabao Cup first round victory against Northampton Town.

Kick-off on Wednesday evening is at 7:45pm with overseas fans able to watch live on our a QPR+ live stream, whilst our UK and Ireland based supporters can tune in for live audio commentary.
