Match preview

A Norwich City outfit absolutely desperate for a return to winning ways are set to act as hosts on Friday, December 30th, in a Championship showdown with Reading.

The Canaries, of course, are currently in the midst of a concerning spell of form.

After heading into the World Cup break fresh off defeat at the hands of Middlesbrough, the east Anglian outfit have since been condemned to a further two losses from three, dating back to December 10th.

The latest came earlier this week, when a trip to Luton Town saw Cauley Woodrow’s last-gasp strike guide the Kenilworth Road hosts to all three points.

And this result proved the final straw for those in a position of power at Carrow Road.

After seeing his side slip from the thick of the promotion battle to the depths of mid-table, Dean Smith was officially relieved of his duties as Norwich boss this past Tuesday.

Safe to say, then, that the upcoming visitors to Carrow Road will be understandably keen to take advantage of the growing concern in east Anglia.

Reading, for their part, have enjoyed an altogether more fruitful go of things of late.

After notching just a solitary win from nine from early October leading into November, the Royals have since bounced back in a major way on the back of the World Cup break.

Two wins from three, and in turn three from four, have culminated in Paul Ince and co. climbing back to mid-table in England’s 2nd tier.

Not only that, but, should they go on to bag a further three points on Friday night, then Reading could, remarkably, find themselves back in the hunt for promotion.

And punting on precisely that would not look at all an unreasonable bet, considering the Royals’ heavy underdog status with bookies across the country.

We at 101, though, view an eventual sharing of the spoils as the most likely outcome upon the final whistle bringing a close to proceedings at Carrow Road on Friday.
