9 - Howson then caught just shy of halfway. City's free-kick but they give it away cheaply.
10 - City's ball again. Steady start to this one after Reading's chance inside the opening minute.
11 - Bennett plays long. Norwich get the throw level with Reading's box.
11 - Combative stuff from the Canaries sees them come out on top. Naismith sends in a cross which goes a little too far for anyone to make something of it immediately, but City do eventually win a corner on the left.
12 - Dorrans sends to the near-post where Naismith meets it but flicks some way over. Goal-kick.
@MarkWenn: Early scare aside, not too much to report of at either end so far.
13 - Dorrans gets a foot in in midfield, winning his side the ball. Jacob looks to progress down the left but is tackled, with the ball ricocheting behind for a goal-kick.
14 - Reading determined to play out from the back, initially struggling to make progress before they earn a free-kick for a push from Oliveira.
14 - They go more direct this time, with the ball skimming off a Reading head to go through to Ruddy.
15 - Oliveira just about knocked off the ball on the edge of the Reading box. Jacob unable to pick up the pieces but City come again.
15 - Naismith goes to ground 25 yards or so from goal. City free-kick. Within range, potentially?
16 - Jacob and Brady over the ball...
16 - Brady takes. Into the wall before flying behind for a corner.
17 - Brady takes. Cleared at the near-post. City get the throw on the right.
17 - Excellent from Naismith. He beats a man and although his pass doesn't find Oliveira, he fights to win it back.
18 - Ultimately in vain though. Reading get a throw following pressure from Oliveira.
18 - Played back to Al Habsi, who kicks long. Bassong up to win it, heading to a yellow shirt in midfield.
19 - Tettey works his way forward under pressure before letting fly with his left from outside the box. Gathered by the Reading 'keeper.
20 - Late from Oliveira as he dropped into midfield to challenge for the ball. Reading free-kick.
20 - Good work from Dorrans, who reacts fastest to win the ball for his side. City the better team here, so far.
21 - Reading forced into a corner, with City getting a throw deep in the host's half.
21 - Reading steal it and break. Tettey stalls their foray forward with a foul, resulting in a free-kick to the home side.
22 - McShane tries to take it quickly. Dorrans in the way and goes down in considerable pain.
23 - Not looking good for Dorrans, who'd started this game well.
23 - Limping. Off the pitch at present. And heading down the tunnel. Change will have to be made it seems.
24 - City down to ten temporarily but they still win a corner as Jacob runs directly at the Reading defence.
25 - Brady on duty in Dorrans' absence.
25 - Towards Bennett but headed away. Second ball played back in but it goes behind for a goal-kick.
25 - Olsson comes on for the injured Dorrans, with Brady moving up the flank to left-midfield. Jacob Murphy takes over on the right and Howson switches to the centre where he partners Tettey.
26 - Close! Pinto does brilliantly to reach a pass from Bennett before hopefully hooking into the box. A poor headed clearance goes as far as Naismith, who sends wide on the half-volley.
27 - Assertive from Ruddy. The ball bounces awkwardly in his box but he gives clear instructions and takes control of the ball.
28 - Ruddy again gets his hands on the ball, catching a cross via Olsson's head.
28 - Naismith chopped down by van den Berg inside the Reading half. Free-kick and a yellow card given.
29 - Olsson pumps towards Bennett. Headed away. Jacob slices well over.
31 - Scrappy period of play here. Loose pass from Reading gives City a throw on halfway.
31 - Brady's shot from distance blocked before he's penalised for holding onto his man. Reading free-kick.
32 - Olsson in the right place to block a cross. McCleary then makes a yard on the right but Ruddy shuffles back to catch his cross.
33 - Pinto tries to make some yards up down the right but knocks out of play. Reading throw.
34 - Bassong hooks clear from deep inside his own box. City have a chance to break but lose it at a crucial moment, leading to Tettey clattering in to stop Reading coming forward. Free-kick and a yellow card.
