Our prediction for this Championship match:
Queens Park Rangers will be aiming to build on a 2-1 win over Blackburn Rovers when they take on Norwich City in the Championship round 31. The Hoops are eager to escape the relegation zone and we are positive that they will adopt an attack-oriented approach against Norwich. January signing Joseph Hodge is pushing for his first QPR start after scoring as a substitute in the Riverside Stadium victory, while midfielder Rayan Kolli continues to miss out with injury.
The Canaries, on the other hand, quickly bounced back from a 1-0 loss to Leeds United, with the team beating Coventry City 2-1 at their Carrow Road. As Norwich City are eager to climb to the playoffs berth, we are tempted to put our money on both teams to score. Defender Danny Bath misses out with a hamstring injury, but he should be the only absentee in the away team.
Highlighted Team (Norwich):
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.
The stadium was built and opened in 1935 and the capacity of the venues is 27,137 (all-seater). However the stadium’s record attendance is 43,984. The Canaries have won two League Cup trophies (1973, 1975) and their main rivals are Ipswich Town. The two teams have been facing each other in the East Anglian Derby since 1902.
The colour of Norwich City’s home kit is yellow and green and that is the main reason why they are known as the Canaries. The likes of Kevin Keeland, Ian Culverhouse, Steve Bruce, Duncan Forbes, Mark Bowen, Darren Huckerby, Ian Crook, Martin Peters, Darren Eadier, Chris Sutton and Iwan Roberts are notable footballers who played for the Carrow Road outfit in the past.
