Team News: McCleary starts

29 November 2014

Garath makes his return from injury at Carrow Road

Nigel Adkins makes two changes to the side that lost at Cardiff last Friday night, handing Garath McCleary his first start since the last day of the 2013-14 season.

McCleary made his return from back surgery as a substitute in Wales eight days ago, but he is named in the starting line-up today at Carrow Road.

Jake Cooper is the only other alteration, an enforced change at the back as Alex Pearce sits out this one to serve his one-match suspension.

Anton Ferdinand returns from his injury absence to take a place on the substitutes' bench, while Simon Cox will begin the game as a substitute.

Still sidelined are Jem Karacan, Hope Akpan, Jamie Mackie, Danny Guthrie, Pavel Pogrebnyak and Craig Tanner.

Norwich City: Ruddy; Whittaker, Martin (c), Turner, Olsson, Redmond, Howson, Tettey, Lafferty, Hooper, Jerome.
Subs: Rudd, Cuellar, Grabban, Hooiveld, Garrido, Murphy, O'Neil.

Reading: Federici, Kelly, Gunter (c), Hector, Cooper, Norwood, Williams, Obita, Robson-Kanu, McCleary, Murray.
Subs: Andersen, Cummings, Ferdinand, Tshibola, Taylor, Blackman, Cox.
