Meet the opposition

QPR achieved a 16th place finish in the Championship last year, two places and four points behind the Canaries.

Ian Holloway was in charge last year but parted company with the club in the summer, paving the way for former England manager Steve McClaren to take charge of the Hoops.

McClaren wasn't able to spend the money he probably would have liked to in the summer transfer and therefore, the Club were restricted to bring in players on loan and free transfers.

German defender Toni Leistner was brought in from Union Berlin to fill the void left by Nedum Onuoha who departed after the expiration of his contract.

Nakhi Wells and Tomer Hemed moved in on loan from Premier League clubs, as well as Geoff Cameron who joined from recently relegated Stoke City on a temporary basis. Experienced full-back Angel Rangel joined on a free from Swansea City.

Last time out, QPR saw off Millwall 2-0 thanks to first-half goals from Massimo Luongo and Ebere Eze.

The last time the Canaries visited QPR was back in April when the Hoops ran out comfortable 4-1 winners. In the reverse fixture in August 2017, City won 2-0 thanks to goals from Nelson Oliveira and Harrison Reed.
