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.
