Meet the opposition

After narrowly avoiding relegation to League One last season, Reading have struggled to improve in the early part of this season.

They did however record their first victory of the 2018-19 season on Saturday, beating Preston North End 3-2 at Deepdale.

Sam Baldock and Tiago Ilori had twice given Reading the lead but they were twice pegged back by equalisers from Daniel Johnson and Callum Robinson.

However, Leandro's Bacuna winner in the closing ten minutes meant a welcome three points would be heading back south with the Royals.

Looking to improve on last season's finish of 20th, Paul Clement introduced strike duo of Baldock [Brighton] and Marc McNulty [Coventry City] for a combined fee of over £5 million.

Clement also took a punt on a number of free agents with David Meyler, John O'Shea, Sam Walker and Andy Yiadom moving to the Madejski.

The last time the Canaries visited Reading was back in September 2017 when goals from James Maddison and Cameron Jerome helped City to a 2-1 win.
