Norwich midfielder Andrew Crofts will be back in the squad for the trip to Reading.The Wales international missed the 1-1 draw at Millwall through suspension and saw his replacement David Fox find the net on Tuesday night.Manager Paul Lambert has a decision to make but is likely to hand Crofts a recall, although the player is one booking away from a further ban.Left-back Stephen Smith picked up a hip injury last weekend so Simon Lappin should continue to fill in.Fellow full-back Adam Drury (calf) is still missing while central defenders Zak Whitbread and Michael Nelson (both ankle) are also sidelined, although the latter has returned to training.Midfielder Andrew Surman remains a casualty with a knee injury and Stephen Hughes is making good progress as he recovers from a recent ankle operation.
