Our Canaries correspondents Paddy Davitt, Michael Bailey and David Freezer are following the Canaries all the way to Riverside Stadium, to bring you all the action and talking points before, during and after Tuesday night’s second-tier clash with a side relegated from the Premier League last season (7.45pm).

The Canaries have picked up eight from their last four Championship outings, keeping a clean sheet in each of them – while also progressing to the last 16 of the Carabao Cup thanks to last week’s 3-1 win at Brentford.

However, City have had to settle for goalless draws in their two previous home league outings – including last time out against in-form Bristol City.

Following their long midweek trip, City are on the road again come the weekend when they head for a live Sky Sports date with last season’s play-off finalists Reading, at Madejski Stadium on Saturday (5.30pm).
