One Day In History - Norwich City 1993-94

One Day In History - Norwich City 1993-94
Teams: Norwich City v Queens Park Rangers

Date: Saturday 12th March, 1994.

Competition: The F.A. Carling Premiership.

Venue: Carrow Road, Norwich

Rangers last victory on Norwich soil was back in 1994, the fixture which Vital QPR has chosen for this latest feature covering one day in history.

QPR came into the fixture off the back of a double against Manchester clubs in W12. United came and took three points in a narrow 3-2 win, whilst City claimed a 1-1 draw at Loftus Road. Rangers found more comfort on the road than at home, beating Coventry and drawing with Arsenal and Leeds United, forgetting the FA Cup exit to Stockport County.

Norwich, under manager John Deehan following the departure of Mike Walker, were without a win in 1994, and it was perceived that this was Deehan`s chance to finally get off the blocks with a win following taking over in January.

It was certainly going according to plan for the Canaries when Mark Bowen gave them a hard fought half time lead, despite Rangers continual pressure on the Norwich backline. However fortuitous it was Norwich who had the lead at the break.

It wasn`t long before they were blown away by Rangers, not even a brace from striker Efan Ekoku could prevent the Canaries from losing yet another fixture. Rangers came flying out the blocks with goals from Simon Barker and Gary Penrice, who performances alone commended their goals.

The Rangers fans who had populated the away weren`t to go home disappointed in a barnstorming second period as Darren Peacock grabbed a well deserved goal for his endeavours as he surprisingly enough had a number of chances.

Chants of "Bruno For England!" reverberated around the away and Devon White notched at Carrow Road, with fans paying homage to the understudy of Les Ferdinand who had really become a cult hero in W12 and captured the imagination of the crowd.

Rangers day was complete with a fantastic second half, that matched the four they put past Tottenham Hotspur in the second half in 1992, the last time they achieved that particular feat.

QPR finished ninth that season, whilst Norwich finished in the bottom half, completing the season in twelfth, only winning two further games that season, ultimately costing Deehan his job as manager.

Final Score: Norwich City 3-4 Queens Park Rangers.

Attendance: 16,499

QPR: Stejskal, Bardsley, Wilson, Wilkins, Peacock, Yates, Meaker (Holloway), Barker, White, Penrice, Sinclair.
