QPR may hand a debut to record signing Chris Samba after securing the signature of the former Blackburn man from Anzhi Makhachkala on transfer deadline day.

The game may come too soon for loan signing Jermaine Jenas whilst Jamie Mackie (back), Shaun Wright-Phillips (ankle), Junior Hoilett (hamstring) and Andrew Johnson (knee) remain absent.

Norwich may opt for the same starting XI which played so well in holding high-flying Tottenham to a draw at Carrow Road in midweek.

Luciano Becchio has signed from Leeds but Chris Hughton may opt to start the Argentine from the bench, with John Ruddy Norwich's only injury absentee with a long-term thigh problem.
