Norwich - Norwich and Queens Park Rangers drew 1-1 in the English Premier League on Saturday, giving the teams their first point of the season after both were thrashed 5-0 in the opening round last week.

Norwich forward Simeon Jackson made it 1-0 in the 11th minute at Carrow Road, heading the ball into the net from Anthony Pilkington's cross after smart interplay down the right also involving Grant Holt and Robert Snodgrass.

QPR equalised through a contentious penalty in the 20th minute, with referee Mark Clattenburg ruling Norwich defender Sebastien Bassong fouled Djibril Cisse from behind.

Norwich goalkeeper John Ruddy turned Cisse's penalty on to the post, but Bobby Zamora followed up successfully.

Norwich had the better second-half chances, with Snodgrass heading over and Russell Martin hitting the crossbar.
