The Royals will miss out on the play-off this season, but Paunovic has had a fine first year at the Madejski Stadium. Who will come out on top in Norfolk at the weekend?

Norwich City Preview – Canaries to win Championship title?

Norwich City have been the real deal in the EFL Championship this season. After suffering a disappointing relegation from the Premier League last term, the Canaries have dusted themselves down and returned to England’s elite league at the first time of asking.

Promotion was secured weeks ago, but Norwich still have a little bit of work to do to claim their second Championship title in three seasons. City are five points clear of Watford with a better goal difference. Xisco Munoz’s Hornets must win their last two and hope for favours elsewhere to snatch the title away from Carrow Road.

Our betting prediction:
Both teams to score

After two defeats, Farke’s boys got back to winning ways in style last weekend, beating in-form Queens Park Rangers 3-1 at the Kiyan Prince Foundation Stadium. Can they take all three points and win the Championship title this Saturday?

Reading Preview – Can the Royals cause an upset?

Reading spent pretty much all season in the top six. Unfortunately for the Royals, they have slipped out at just the wrong time. Last weekend’s 2-2 home draw with Swansea City confirmed their fate.

Reading will want to finish the season in seventh. At the time of writing, the Royals are five points clear of Cardiff City, who start the weekend in eighth. After this Saturday’s fixture at the home of the leaders, the Berkshire side end their campaign with a home game against lowly Huddersfield Town next weekend.
