Reading will be desperate to secure their first Premier League win of the season when they welcome Norwich to the Madjeski Stadium on Saturday.

Brain McDermott has gone 9 games without a win, and watched his side throw away another lead at QPR last weekend, with the season’s first relegation ‘six pointer’ ending in a 1-1 draw.

With only one defeat in five, McDermott knows his side simply need to turn the draws into victories, and will hoping to start here.

Norwich could prove ideal opponents for Reading this weekend, considering their poor away record. The Canaries have gone 38 games since they last managed a Premier League clean sheet on the road and have won only one of their last 11 away from Carrow Road.

Reading are set to recall goalkeeper Adam Federicci following the news in-form Alex McCarthy is set to be ruled out for a number of weeks after suffering a shoulder injury at the end of the 1-1 draw with QPR last weekend.

Norwich defender Russell Martin’s back injury will continue to be assessed ahead of a trip to the Madejski, whilst defenders Michael Turner and Javier Garrido are both expected to be fit despite being substituted with injuries during the 1-0 win over Stoke last weekend.

Prediction: Reading 3-2 Norwich
