QPR vs Norwich: Hosts to finally find the goal trail

| 01.01.2012

QPR may be averaging less than a goal a game at Loftus Road in the Premier League so far this season, but they can find their scoring boots to take a valuable three points from the visit of Norwich.

Both will be pleased to have made it to the New Year outside of the relegation places in their first season back in the Premier League, but know there is work to do to confirm their survival in the top flight.

Home games will be especially critical and QPR will understand the importance of beating their fellow relegation contenders at Loftus Road.

Eight goals in their nine home games thus far is not enough, particularly with the attacking talents of Shaun Wright-Phillips and Adel Taarabt at their disposal.

But with Norwich still waiting for their first clan sheet of the season, QPR should be able to better their goal ratio against the Canaries and in doing so claim just a second home victory of the campaign, having previously beaten a nine-man Chelsea.

QPR are 1/1 in Premier League odds to beat Norwich and a victory should provide a little breathing space from the bottom three.

Another market worth considering is how many goals QPR will score and the 6/4 on offer that they manage two or three makes the most appealing bet.

Norwich have scored in all barring one of their away Premier League games and so they should be able to profit if QPR suffer from further scoring troubles.

It is 11/5 that Norwich triumph, with the draw priced at the same price.
