  • Norwich 1 QPR 1. A point apiece at Carrow Road. Both sides will take that given what they went through last week. An entertaining game and both sides look capable of steering well clear of trouble this season.

  • Closing stages. Will there be one last chance? Norwich look for Morison, and Fabio concedes two throws in quick succession. Nothing happening for the hosts. QPR look to counter, but Cisse is offside yet again.

  • Park looks wide towards Bosingwa. He has space to move into, but sets off late and is unable to prevent the ball from slipping out of play. Nice play from Norwich has Snodgrass bombing to the by-line, but he can't pull the ball back for a team-mate.

  • QPR happy to sit now and protect what they have. Morison wins the ball in the air as Norwich go long, but the loose ball drops to a man in a hooped shirt.

  • Three minutes of stoppage-time to be played.

  • We are back underway. Zamora hammers the ball back to Norwich. Ruddy claims in front of his goal. Smile from Zamora. Morison unable to get the Canaries moving down their right.

  • Cisse beats the offside trap this time, but Ruddy is alert enough to race out of his box and hammer clear. Hoilett goes down clutching his face. He jumped into Howson's elbow.

  • Double change by Norwich as Holt and Jackson make way for Morison and Chris Martin. New strike force thrown on by Hughton.

  • Cisse running into open field, but yet again he is flagged offside. On this occasion both he and Zamora had strayed beyond the last man.

  • Final change for QPR sees Diakite make way for Derry. Hughes throwing on experience to shore things up.

  • Pilkington forces another corner. He takes the set-piece himself. Delivery is not the best again, as Mackie is able to volley clear. Snodgrass then eases the pressure on QPR by conceding a free-kick.

  • Diakite under pressure from Holt and QPR lose the ball inside their own half. Norwich still hungry and full of energy. Have they got enough left in the tank to grab a winner?

  • Snodgrass' delivery is glanced behind by Ferdinand. Norwich take the set-piece quickly. Pilkington hangs the ball to the back post, where Martin sees a looping header cannon off the face of the crossbar.

  • Ferdinand goes into the book. He is now in charge of looking after Holt. He struggles on this occasion as the big striker turns him. Ferdinand hauls Holt to the deck.

  • Another poor effort sails high into the crowd. Good hold up play from Jackson allows Norwich to work the ball to Pilkington. From 25 yards out he gets underneath his shot and almost clears the stand.

  • Still no joy for Cisse. Flag up again as he fails to look along the line. If he had done, he could have dropped a yard and then span in behind. Not been his afternoon.

  • Plenty of pace on the delivery from Snodgrass, but too much height. Holt is the target towards the back post, but he can't grow enough to get a telling touch. At the other end, Zamora fires high into the crowd with a wild effort.

  • Holt tries to brush off three defenders, but can't keep his balance as he arrives at the penalty area. Solid challenge put in by Onuoha. Fabio then catches Snodgrass with a stray arm. Free-kick to Norwich wide on their right.

  • Wayward from Martin as he floats a ball over the top and out of play. Snodgrass looked to break in behind, but then checked. He would never have caught up with the heavy pass anyway.

  • Cisse thinks he is clear and in on goal. He was, however, a good two yards offside when the ball was fed through to him. He never got back onside as the Norwich defence pushed out.
