The latest squad news ahead of Saturday's game

FRIDAY brought mixed news on the injury front for Norwich City ahead of the weekend visit of Reading.

Wes Hoolahan has missed the Canaries' last two matches with a thigh injury but Alan Irvine confirmed that the midfielder has trained this week and will be in the squad for Saturday.

Graham Dorrans, however, won't be involved as a result of the ankle knock he suffered in the 2-0 defeat to Aston Villa last Saturday.

Irvine's ranks are boosted by the returns of both Mitchell Dijks and Ivo Pinto from suspension, with Dijks having missed City's last three matches.

"It's nice to have your best players back, there's no question about that," City's Interim Head Coach told Norwich City TV on Friday.

"Every team in the country struggles when they're missing key players, so it's great to have some choices to make."

Louis Thompson is a long-term absentee after undergoing Achilles surgery in January.
