City are without a win in seven league games, following their midweek 1-1 draw at Barnsley.
They actually return to Carrow Road, where their previous two games have been goalless. That was the second time City’s home supporters have tasted consecutive 0-0 draws in the league this season. Before which, City hadn’t experienced the phenomenon outside the top flight since 1921.
Reading, who were hammered 7-1 at Carrow Road late last season before going on to lose the Championship play-off final to Huddersfield Town on penalties, have won just once in 14 league games. They went down 3-0 at leaders Wolves in midweek.
It’s the first international break of 2018 that follows City’s game this weekend.
When they return, Easter brings a Good Friday (3pm) visit to Carrow Road from promotion-chasing Fulham – before Easter Monday’s trip to Queens Park Rangers (3pm).
Each and every Norwich City first-team game, our reporters will be on the scene. If you see them – especially with their cameras – say hello.
