Norwich City put some daylight between themselves and the chasing pack with a 2-1 win over Reading -  and you can recap all the updates, analysis and reaction from the Madejski Stadium in our Matchday Live blog.

Emi Buendia seized upon a loose ball from Andy Rinomhota before slotting the ball past Rafael to put Daniel Farke's side ahead. City have been fortunate with deflections to date during this campaign but were on the receiving end when Ovie Ejaria's shot deflected off Michael Olise and then Alfa Semedo before bouncing into the net. 

Farke brought on Todd Cantwell and Kieran Dowell at half-time and the duo injected some real quality into City's play in possession. Max Aarons was then brought down by Liam Moore in the box, prompting the referee to point to spot. 

Teemu Pukki rolled the ball into the net to give the Canaries the lead. They then managed the game well to secure their fourth consecutive win. City now sit six points clear of third and ten points clear of sixth.
