The national newspapers’ views on Norwich City’s 0-0 draw at QPR.

The Sunday Mirror: “The Canaries should have had a penalty when new signing Luciano Becchio was pushed in the last minute. But it’s now seven weeks since their last league win.”

The Mail on Sunday: “On reflection, Taarabt will review the tape of his penalty and realise that his body shape offered Bunn a massive clue as to where he intended to strike the ball.”

The Observer: “Norwich ceded most of the possession to the hosts and their lack of pace on the counter was exacerbated by the loss of winger Anthony Pilkington.”

The Sunday Telegraph: “Rangers were kept out by a combination of wayward finishing and superb goalkeeping from Mark Bunn, who saved Taarabt’s penalty after he tripped Jamie Mackie.”

The Independent: “There was no instant return from Tony Fernandes’ £22million gamble as QPR spurned the chance to gain their second home win of the season.”
