Canaries to see off Royals

We begin our tips for this match by backing Norwich to win. Reading have only lost one of their past five home games – that came three games back as they were taken apart by Sunderland. Norwich meanwhile have won each of their last three games on the road and, more notably, are unbeaten in nine games. If that's not enough for you to back Norwich to win then a look at the head to head record might force you over the line; six of the last seven meetings between the sides have been won by the Canaries with the other match in that run ending in a draw. The last Reading win came way back in 2016!

Goals, goals, goals

Our next tip for this game is an over 2.5 goal prediction from the total goals market and, based on stats, it's somewhat of a slam dunk. Reading have gone over 2.5 goals in four of their last five games whilst Norwich have gone north of the 2.5 threshold in three of their most recent five. That recent form already leans towards the ‘over' bet being the wise choice but feed in the head to head record and that is confirmed; the last 11 head to head games have seen at least three goals.

Top of the table clash incoming

This game pits second against third in the Championship in what should not only be a really good game of football but one that could have a big impact on the table come May. Throw into that the fact that both sides could go top (or joint top in Reading's case) and there is an awful lot to play for.

This is a big game for Reading and whilst they'll be confident of getting some form of result it is impossible to ignore their injury list with six players out injured; amongst those are Scott Dann and Femi Azeez.

Reading Predicted lineup – Lumley, Yiadom, McIntyre, Holmes, Hoilett, Hutchinson, Ince, Hendrick, Guinness-Walker, Carroll, Joao

Norwich could go top of the table with a win here, which would be quite the achievement considering their injury list. Isaac Hayden and Liam Gibbs are amongst those injured. That said, they still have a pretty rich squad to choose from.

Norwich Predicted lineup – Krul, Aarons, Hanley, Omobamidele, Byram, Nunez, McClean, Ramsey, Sargent, Pukki, Hernandez
