Reading Preview – Can the Royals shock the Canaries?

Reading survived by the skin of their teeth last term and were many people’s picks to struggle again this year. However, the Royals have been the surprise package thus far, winning seven of their opening 11 matches. So far, they have won seven and lost four.

Ince’s men returned from the international break with a home game against struggling Huddersfield Town. They made light work of the Terriers, cruising to a 3-1 win. The Berkshire side have been superb on their own patch this season, winning five of six in the Championship.

Our betting prediction:
Under 2.5 goals

(odds taken 1810 GMT, Monday 3 October)

Reading would send out a real signal of intent with three points against the title favourites on Tuesday. At the time of writing, the home win is available at 14/5.

Norwich City Preview – Will City’s unbeaten run go on?

Norwich City made a slow start to their Championship season after dropping out of the Premier League again. On the opening weekend, the Canaries were beaten at Cardiff City. They then drew at home with Wigan Athletic before losing at Hull City.

Smith’s side have hardly put a foot wrong since, dropping just two points. Norwich won six on the spin before drawing at home with West Bromwich Albion before the international break. City returned to action on Saturday with a hard-fought win at Blackpool.
