Pressure increased on Norwich manager Nigel Worthington following his side's 3-0 capitulation at the hands of QPR.

Rangers inflicted the damage during the first-half, with Marc Nygaard, Paul Furlong and George Santos (pictured) all hitting the back of the net.

Nygaard registered his third goal of the season after 11 minutes when he headed home unmarked from Lee Cook's right wing centre.

The second came just minutes later when England keeper Robert Green failed to deal with Furlong's flick-on from Cook's in-swinging free kick.

Santos, on as a sub for the injured Marc Bircham, compounded the Canaries' misery with what was virtually his first touch of the game, thumping home from a half-cleared Kevin Gallen corner.

Norwich came out fired up in the second period but, in spite of a number of chances falling to Darren Huckerby and Dean Ashton, they were unable to respond against a rampant QPR side.
