QPR Preview

City’s last home game of the season takes place afternoon against Queens Park Rangers.

Ryan Bertrand and Mo Camara are both rated as 50/50, so if both are unavailable Matty Pattison may be asked to slot into the left back position. Darel Russell is expected to return to the starting line-up alongside Mark Fotheringham. Expect Dion Dublin to start in his last game at Carrow Road alongside Jamie Cureton.

The R’s have doubts over former City target Fitz Hall and Patrick Agyemang, while teenage sensation Angelo Balanta will probably feature again.

A win will guarantee safety for the Canaries, and a draw would also be enough to avoid relegation should Leicester beat Sheffield Wednesday. We would also be pretty much safe if we were to draw and Southampton lose to West Bromwich Albion on Monday night, unless some very unlikely scores occur next week.

A few facts…

League Position: Norwich 18th, QPR 14th.

Last Meeting: 8th October 2007 – QPR 1 Norwich 0. The straw that broke Peter Grant’s back.

Last Meeting at Carrow Road: 30th December 2006 – Norwich 1 QPR 0.

Top Goalscorer: Norwich – Cureton (14), QPR- Buzsaky (10).

Recently Played for Both Clubs: Jamie Cureton, Peter Crouch, Lee Camp, Jason Jarrett.

My Prediction: It’ll be tough, it’ll probably be tense, but when I originally made my predictions I went for a home win, and I cannot even begin to think of anything else. Norwich City 2 QPR 0.
