Watch Norwich vs QPR on Saturday from 12pm on Sky Sports Football; Kick-off is at 12.30pm

Last Updated: 06/04/19 7:38am

Championship leaders Norwich will chase an eighth straight win when managerless QPR head to Carrow Road for Saturday's lunchtime kick-off.

Canaries head coach Daniel Farke named an unchanged side for the seventh successive game ahead of the 1-0 victory at Middlesbrough. Mario Vrancic is pressing for a recall having come off the bench last weekend, while fellow midfielder Moritz Leitner is another option should Farke opt to freshen things up.

Louis Thompson has now recovered from a knee problem so the midfielder could be drafted back into the squad. Forward Carlton Morris (ankle) continues his recovery.

QPR sacked manager Steve McClaren on Monday following an extended poor run of results which saw the west London club left only eight points clear of the relegation zone. John Eustace will be in charge this weekend having taken over first-team affairs on an interim basis.

Eustace reported only a couple of minor knocks in the squad but otherwise has no major fresh injury concerns. Defender Angel Rangel made his first appearance since early December following a thigh injury in last weekend's 2-1 home defeat by Bolton, and should be in contention again.

Prutton's prediction

It is hard to see anyone stopping Norwich from going on to seal promotion now, with seven points between themselves and Sheffield United in third heading into the weekend.

QPR have had a disastrous 2019 and that is why patience ran out with Steve McClaren. Even with a different man in the dugout it is hard to make any kind of a case for them at Carrow Road. Home win.

David Prutton predicts: 3-0 (10/1 with Sky Bet)
