History of the Queens Park Rangers v Norwich City fixture

Norwich City travel to take on Queens Park Rangers at Loftus Road on Saturday afternoon, needing to turn around their fortunes at the ground. The Canaries will be hoping to improve upon a record which has seen them lose 28 and win only 10 of the 52 games.

The last time the two teams met at Q.P.R. was just over four years ago, in December 2000, with Norwich City inflicting a narrow 2 - 3 defeat upon the Rangers in a League Division One match.
