Norwich duo Mitchell Dijks and Ivo Pinto back from suspension for Reading clash

Norwich will have defenders Mitchell Dijks and Ivo Pinto available again following suspension for the visit of play-off chasing Reading.

Republic of Ireland international Wes Hoolahan missed the midweek defeat at Huddersfield with a thigh problem, while midfielder Graham Dorrans is being assessed due to an ankle injury.

Youssouf Mulumbu returned to the bench against the Terriers after recovering from a thigh problem which ruled the midfielder out since mid-February.

Winger Matt Jarvis continues his recovery from a hamstring injury, while midfielder Louis Thompson is out for the rest of the season following Achilles surgery.

Jordan Obita is expected to miss out once again for Reading.

Obita has a leg injury sustained in the win over Leeds and missed the victory over Blackburn.

Danny Williams came off the bench against Rovers despite twisting an ankle against Leeds and could start, as could Tiago Ilori after he returned from a knee injury.

Paul McShane (calf), Joey van den Berg (hamstring), Deniss Rakels (ankle) and Danzell Gravenberch (ankle) are still out, while Callum Harriott is returning to fitness following a hamstring injury.
