Harford: Looking for a win
Bottom of the table QPR entertain third from bottom Norwich City in Monday night's Championship clash, live on Sky Sports 1.
Caretaker Rangers boss Mick Harford is desperate to record his first points since taking over from the sacked John Gregory to help his side climb out of trouble.
Harford hopes to hand defender Martin Cranie his Rangers debut after signing him on loan from Portsmouth.
Other loan signings Rowan Vine and Jason Jarrett are also set for their home debuts, but Pat Kanyuka is sidelined with a groin injury.
Meanwhile, the Canaries head into the Loftus Road encounter looking to notch their first win in five matches.
Under pressure boss Peter Grant will also be looking to end his side's dreadful scoring record.
City have not scored in five games, and mustered just five goals in nine league games.
Skipper Jason Shackell returns to the side after suspension but Grant is likely to be without defenders Gary Doherty (groin), Ian Murray (foot), Adam Drury (back) and Jamie Cureton (foot).
