Manager Chris Hughton is confident new Norwich striker Luciano Becchio can offer his team "something different" as they look to avoid being dragged into a battle for Barclays Premier League survival.

The Canaries head to bottom club QPR some seven points clear of the drop zone, but without a league win since December 15. Argentinian forward Becchio - who scored 19 goals for Leeds this season and arrived as part of a swap deal for Wales international Steve Morison - will provide much-needed back-up for captain Grant Holt.

"Becchio is a player in good form this season, which is important," Hughton told a press conference. "You want someone who is going to hit the ground running and give us something, whether it is starting or on the bench."
