It is third versus second in the Championship, with both sides eager to maintain the pressure on leaders Sheffield United.
And it promises to be a closely fought encounter. Reading have won six of their last eight matches, while Norwich are unbeaten in eight (winning seven).
The Royals could move level with the Blades with victory, although Paul Ince will have concerns about his defence, who have registered just one clean sheet from a possible five.
As for Norwich, they would leapfrog Sheffield United by taking the spoils in Berkshire.
It is early days, but you would expect Dean Smith’s side to remain well in the hunt to secure an immediate return to the Premier League.
And it is worth noting that the Canaries have only lost one of their last 14 midweek matches in the Championship, winning 11.
