Our reporters will bring you all the latest from Norwich City sporting director Stuart Webber's first press conference before interim manager Alan Irvine faces the media as the Canaries prepare to host Reading in the Championship.

Alan Irvine will continue in caretaker charge for this weekend's Championship test against Reading, after Stuart Webber was finally confirmed as the club's football tzar.

Irvine revealed, following a 12th away league defeat at Huddersfield, he does not expect to be part of the longer term set-up but his interim spell has convinced him of the need for radical change.

'It is a big job. I thought that even before,' he said.

'There are going to be changes here. Without a doubt. Whether these are the same players or not moving forward I don't know but it needs to change. What happened (at Huddersfield) has happened far too often this season and it shows a weakness in the character of these players. Alex (Neil) made changes in the hope it was individuals but unfortunately it appears to be right through the team. You can not be successful with those traits. It is something we have talked about, in terms of playing away, and in the future this group of players have to sort that out.'
