Reading Get Another Home Draw In FA Cup
31 January 2016
By Hob Nob Anyone?
Reading have been drawn at home again in the FA Cup and will face either Premier League West Bromwich Albion or League One Peterborough United. The game will take place on the 20th February at the Madejski Stadium.
The Royals were 4-0 winners over League One Walsall in round four yesterday to progress to the next round. Meanwhile West Bromwich were held to a 2-2 home draw with Peterborough and will have to play out a replay to see who will face the Royals.
Although it is not the most glamorous fixture for Reading it does give us another chance to continue an FA Cup run. West Brom are 14th in the Premier League and would obviously provide a tough test, but with home advantage it's the kind of fixture where a shock home win could be a possibility. Peterborough will have home advantage in their replay and could provide a shock of their own to meet Reading in the next round. Peterborough are 8th in League One chasing a play off place.
