Jackson scores for Norwich in EPL’s Region of Peel derby match


The game ended in a draw, but Mississauga, Ont’s Simeon Jackson holds bragging rights over Brampton Ont.’s Junior Hoilett after Saturday’s Region of Peel derby.

Jackson scored on a close-range header in the 11th minute to give his Norwich City side a 1-0 lead over Hoilett’s Queens Park Rangers.

Bobby Zamora got the equalizer, scoring off a rebound from a Djibril Cisse penalty — and the game finished 1-1.

Both Jackson and Holiett had great opportunities to score later in the game: but in each case, their efforts went just wide of the respective goals.

For Jackson, the goal was a bit of redemption. He wasn’t even in manager Chris Hughton’s squad for the Canaries’ opener, which saw Norwich punted around by Fulham, to the tune of a 5-0 loss.

QPR also lost its opener by five goals, to Swansea.

With World Cup qualifiers just two weeks away, and Canadian team coach Stephen Hart concerned about the amount of club football his players are getting at this time, he’ll be overjoyed to see that Jackson got a Premier League start. And, to make the day all that much better for Hart, Jackson got a confidence boosting goal — and his performance should be good enough to keep his place in Norwich’s starting XI.

Of course, Hoilett has yet to play for Canada.
