The Canaries boast the best attack in the Championship and Wednesday's clash against the Royals should see the league leaders quick out of the blocks

After three seasons away from the top-flight, Norwich City are on course for a return to the Premier League. Leading the Championship with 84 points and just six games to go in the regular campaign, the Canaries are in a commanding position.

Having won each of their previous eight league games, it's no surprise to see 888Sport make Norwich just 4/11 (1.36) to beat struggling Reading on Wednesday evening.

The Royals are priced at 15/2 (8.50) to pull off a shock victory at Carrow Road. Three victories in their last six league games have seen the visitors climb out of the relegation zone, albeit only by a single point going into the midweek round of fixtures so their safety is far from assured.

Norwich have more than double Reading's points tally this term but the pair being forced to share the spoils is 19/5 (4.80).

Despite some positive results in recent weeks, the visitors' record against the division's best teams doesn't bode well ahead of this trip to East Anglia.

Reading have played six games against teams currently ranked in the top four, losing each of them and doing so by an aggregate score line of 16-2.

A home win by two or more goals on the -1 handicap market is available at 49/50 (1.98) with 888Sport but there looks a better option at around the same price.

Norwich to be leading at both half-time and full-time is 19/20 (1.95) with the same firm and appears a worthy selection.

Daniel Farke's men are on an incredible eight-game winning run and have developed a notable habit of making early in-roads, especially at Carrow Road.

Since the turn of the year, the Canaries have won six home games and were ahead at half-time in four of them.

Backing a repeat adds enough juice to Norwich's price to make it worth considering as a single selection, especially considering how Reading have struggled against the best Championship sides this term.
