🚨 Team news | Three changes for Canaries clash

Take a look at the teams that face off in tonight's live TV broadcast...

16 December 2020

After the weekend's win at QPR, there are three changes to the starting XI as Michael Olise, Lewis Gibson and Tom Holmes all come in.

Lucas Joao and Yakou Meite missed out at QPR at the weekend and will now be absent until January at the earliest, while Omar Richards had to be withdrawn with an injury in the first half of the win at Loftus Road.

Gibson deputised on Saturday and starts only his second game in blue and white hoops this evening, while Holmes comes in on the other side of defence in place of Tomas Esteves, who is available from the bench.

Michael Olise came off the bench on Saturday to score a spectacular winner and returns to the starting line-up for our televised game.

Meanwhile John Swift and Andy Yiadom remain ruled out with injury, as does Felipe Araruna.

Academy graduates Nahum Melvin-Lambert, Tennai Watson, Ryan East and Tom McIntyre are joined by young left-back Ethan Bristow on the bench tonight, while 19-year-old Jayden Onen continues to patiently wait for his Royals debut as one of nine substitites.

Reading: Rafael, Holmes, Gibson, Moore (c), Morrison, Rinomhota, Laurent, Semedo, Olise, Ejaria, Aluko.
Subs: Walker, Esteves, McIntyre, Bristow, Watson, East, Onen, Melvin-Lambert, Baldock.

Norwich City: McGovern, Aarons, Hanley (c), Zimmermann, Buendia, Stiepermann, Sorensen, Skipp, Pukki, McLean, Martin.
Subs: Barden, Vrancic, Hugill, Dowell, Cantwell, Tettey, Omobamidele, Omotoye.
