England goalkeeper John Ruddy could return to the Norwich City line-up for their crucial game against Reading at the weekend.

Ruddy has been out of action for five months after tearing a thigh muscle at Everton in October.

He played his second full match in the Barclays Under-21 Development League win at Bolton last night, and impressed with a clean sheet in the 1-0 victory.

Norwich senior professional development coach Scott Marshall said on the club's official website,

"John was on form and made a couple of good stops. He is getting there definitely.

"I am sure he will be pleased with the match action he got and it is another one on the road to getting back to full fitness.
