Saturday's 2-1 success at Plymouth, coupled with the prospect of a home debut for new signing Antoine Sibierski, prompted an extra 300 ticket sales yesterday morning alone for the visit of Queen's Park Rangers tomorrow (7.45pm).

With up to 1,200 Rangers fans expected to turn up, the Canaries are hoping to hit the 25,000 mark.

“Business has been brisk and certainly more vibrant than for the first two home games,” said Andrew Cullen, City's director of sales and marketing.
