Norwich   1 - 0   QPR

Norwich v QPR

Norwich 1-0 QPR

Norwich moved up to third in the table after Russell Martin's first-half goal condemned 10-man QPR to their third loss of the season.

Martin fired City ahead in the 10th minute after Rangers defender Kaspars Gorkss blocked Chris Martin's shot.

Just after half time the Championship leaders had Matthew Connolly sent off for a professional foul on Grant Holt.

The Canaries wasted several chances to kill off the game but QPR were unable to muster enough to claim an equaliser.

Neil Warnock's side remain top of the table, but their lead is now just four points over second-placed Swansea.

Norwich, though, continue to impress and their third successive victory leaves them a point behind the Swans.

It could have been very different had QPR's Jamie Mackie not headed the first chance of the match wide, shortly before Norwich scored.

Chris Martin finished off a mazy run with a shot that Gorkss was able to block but the loose ball was fired home by Russell Martin.

New signing Aaron Wilbraham was denied a debut goal by a linesman's flag as the home side took control.

The visitors chances of a result were further dented five minutes into the second half when Connolly saw red for hauling down Holt.

The home side were nearly made to pay for wasted opportunities 16 minutes from the end but Patrick Agyemang was denied by the post.
