Norwich substitute Grant Holt proved the hero of the day as he netted the winner in a hard-fought 2-1 encounter with QPR.

The Canaries dominated the opening exchanges and broke the deadlock after 15 minutes when skipper Russell Martin reacted quickest during a melee in the six-yard box.

QPR responded well and got a deserved equaliser when Luke Young netted after a Jamie Mackie drive rebounded back off the post. However, the west Londoners were to be denied a share of the spoils as Holt bundled home a cross from fellow substitute Wes Hoolahan.
