EFL Championship leaders Norwich City host QPR at Carrow Road on Tuesday, with Daniel Farke's side looking to get back to winning ways.

Norwich City lost 1-0 to Watford on Boxing Day, as a first-half goal from Ismaila Sarr was enough for the Hornets to register a win in their first match under head coach Xisco Munoz.

That loss meant that Watford closed the gap on Norwich at the top of the Championship table to only four points.

Daniel Farke's side, though, have a chance to restart and put together another run of results, starting on Tuesday against QPR.

The Rs have not won any of their last eight games in the Championship, drawing three and losing five of those matches.

Last time out, they lost 2-0 at home to Swansea City on Boxing Day. Goals from Andre Ayew and Jamal Lowe condemned QPR to their ninth loss of the season. They are 18th in the Championship, with 20 points from 21 matches.
