U21s PREVIEW: READING

25 October 2015

City looking for upturn in league form

CITY's Development Squad visit Reading on Monday for their latest Barclays Under-21s Premier League game (7pm).

Dmitri Halajko's young Canaries are currently second from bottom in the Elite tier of the division after winning one, drawing one and losing three of their five matches so far.

They have combined their league schedule with continental commitments over recent weeks but return to domestic action at the Madejski Stadium.

The contest comes less than a week after Halajko's team were beaten 2-1 by Leicester City in their third and final International Cup group game.

City are likely to field a youthful team once again, with five of Halajko's already small squad away from the Club on loan. They are allowed to feature three overage outfield players in the competition, however.

After the Foxes defeat, their coach said: "We weren't clinical enough. We had enough chances to win the game and we didn't take them, and there are slim margins at this level.

"We played very well in the second half, but we're disappointed with the result and the performance in the first half because it's wasn't good."

Stay tuned across our channels on Monday night as we bring you in-depth coverage from the Madejski Stadium.
