7 April 2017

All you need to kno about Satyurday's clash in Norwich in our match preivew...

Norwich vs Reading
Carrow Road
Sky Bet Championship
Saturday 8th April 2017, 3pm

The Royals head in to Saturday's clash with Norwich City on a run of three straight wins in the Sky Bet Championship, looking to add to that tally come 3pm on Saturday afternoon.

In contrast, Norwich will come into the game following back-to-back defeats, with the managerless Canaries going down 3-0 and 2-0 at Huddersfield and Aston Villa respectively in the last week.

The home side will be hoping to bounce back from these two defeats in front of a home crowd on Saturday and will be looking to put the brakes on Jaap Stam's side who are looking in good form ahead of the weekend. 

Tickets for this fixture will be on sale until Friday 7th of May at midday. Tickets will also be available to buy on the day at Carrow Road, at the main Ticket Office.
