Norwich City vs Reading - Emi Buendia unavailable for Norwich’s encounter

Championship leaders Norwich will be without suspended midfielder Emi Buendia when relegation-battlers Reading visit Carrow Road.

The Argentine was shown a straight red card during Saturday’s 4-0 win over QPR and begins a three-match ban. Mario Vrancic and Moritz Leitner are both options to come into the side.

Canaries head coach Daniel Farke reported no fresh injury worries as his side chase a ninth straight victory.

Midfielder Louis Thompson has now recovered from a knee problem, while forward Carlton Morris (ankle) has also stepped up his rehabilitation.

Reading forward Nelson Oliveira, on loan from Norwich, has returned to action following a facial injury, but is not eligible to play against his parent club.

John Swift is doubtful due to the hip problem which saw him miss Saturday’s 3-1 defeat against Hull.

Striker Sam Baldock has stepped up his recovery from a thigh injury which has sidelined him since Boxing Day and could come back into contention.

Jon Dadi Bodvarsson is also closing in on a return after breaking a bone in his lower back, along with midfielder Saeid Ezatolahi (thigh) and left-back Omar Richards (knee).
