Our prediction for this Championship match:
Following a heavy 5-1 loss to Middlesbrough, Norwich City will look to move closer to the playoffs berth when they take on Queens Park Rangers on Matchday 43. The Canaries experienced all sorts of problems at the back at the weekend, but they are still seen as favourites to beat the Hoops in the midweek clash. All Kenny McLean, Grant Hanley, Ben Gibson, Kieran Dowell, and Przemyslaw Placheta are sidelined with injuries, while both Giannoulis and Idah are pushing for recalls to the starting XI.
The Hoops, on the other hand, aim to bounce back from a 3-0 loss to Coventry, but given their difficulties at the back, we are not tempted to put our money on the relegation-threatened hosts. Midfielder Chris Willock should be recalled to the starting XI, while all Luke Amos, Osman Kakay, and Jake Clarke-Salter are out of contention through injuries.

After spending only one season in the Premier League, Norwich City dropped to the Championship at the end of the 2015/2016 campaign. Norwich City are located in Norwich, Norfolk and they welcome their rivals at Carrow Road.
