Norwich beats QPR 2-1 in Premier League

Grant Holt came off the substitutes’ bench to score the winner

as Norwich ended a run of four Premier League games without a

victory by edging Queens Park Rangers 2-1 on Saturday.

Russell Martin gave Norwich the lead after 15 minutes when the

skipper reacted quickest during a melee in the six-yard box. QPR

reacted well, though, and Luke Young slotted home a deserved

equalizer from a tight angle when a speculative drive by Jamie

Mackie came back off the post and into his path.

However, the west Londoners were to be denied a share of the

spoils when Holt bundled home a cross from fellow substitute Wes

Hoolahan in the 73rd minute.

The win ended a run of two defeats, preceded by two draws, for

the East Anglian club.
