Match Preview
Suspended Steven Naismith misses out for Norwich

Norwich will be without suspended forward Steven Naismith for the final match of the Sky Bet Championship campaign against QPR.

The Scotland international was shown a straight red card for a high tackle on Leeds midfielder Ronaldo Vieira during last weekend's 3-3 draw at Elland Road, so starts a three-match ban which will be carried over into next season.

Midfielders Wes Hoolahan (hip) and Alex Tettey (back) are expected to be in contention, along with forward Nelson Oliveira following illness.

Goalkeeper John Ruddy is set for his final Canaries' appearance having been confirmed as one of seven out-of-contract players to depart Carrow Road in the summer. Winger Matt Jarvis (knee) and midfielder Louis Thompson (Achilles) continue their rehabilitation.

QPR defender Grant Hall remains a doubt after missing the last four matches with a knee problem.

Striker Idrissa Sylla was an unused substitute against Nottingham Forest last weekend after suggesting he was not fit enough to play.

The win over Forest secured safety for Rangers so boss Ian Holloway could make changes as he looks towards next season.

Young defender Darnell Furlong may return to the starting line-up while Michael Doughty could get a chance in midfield.
