Title-chasing Canaries can claim crucial win
Already-promoted Norwich City lost their most recent home contest against Watford, who have also secured automatic promotion to the Premier League this season, but they can claim the Championship title with victory over Reading.
The Canaries have won an impressive 28 Championship fixtures this season and managed to hold off a late push from QPR to win at Loftus Road last time out.
They now require only two points from their last two matches to guarantee top spot and should take three against a Royals outfit, who have seen their playoff push derailed by a run of four games without a win.
Reading can no longer make the top six and could therefore lack incentive against Daniel Farke’s title hopefuls so Norwich can be expected to win.
But Reading have scored in ten of their last 12 games so a Norwich win and both teams to score looks a great bet and we predict a 2-1 victory.
