QPR 3-3 Norwich
Martin Rowlands struck in injury time to earn a point for QPR in a six-goal thriller at Loftus Road.

Darren Huckerby's early strike put Norwich ahead before on-loan Chelsea midfielder Jimmy Smith and Rowlands netted to give Rangers hope.

Substitute Dion Dublin's 71st-minute effort squared the game again before Robert Earnshaw put Norwich ahead again with a late penalty.

But Rowlands then netted again from an acute angle to snatch a late QPR point.


  • QPR manager John Gregory:
    "We gifted our three goals, which is something that was becoming a habit here.

    "If everything had been perfect, they wouldn't have brought me here in the first place - but the players showed great spirit."

  • Norwich caretaker boss Martin Hunter on the decision to add five minutes of injury time:
    "I asked the fourth official if he was counting the time on a sundial.

    "The five minutes gave the home crowd a lift. But there are some proud players in that dressing room, and we showed more steel today.

    "The division is very tight. No-one will run away with it this season."
