Wes Hoolahan will remain on penalty-taking duties for Norwich despite blowing the chance to inflict a first defeat of the season on npower Championship leaders QPR, as the pair shared a goalless draw.

The Irish midfielder fluffed his big moment midway through the first half as City failed to score away from home in the league for the first time under Paul Lambert. Rangers have yet to concede a league goal at home this season and, unfortunately for the neutral, their record held out.

``I've spoken to Wes, but that kid's been unplayable at times,'' said Canaries manager Lambert. ``His performances for me have been top class and he's scored his two previous penalties. He'll bounce back. I won't have a problem with him taking the next one if he wants to.''
