Royals Get Brighton In League Cup

24 August 2016
By Hob Nob Anyone?

Reading have been drawn away at Brighton and Hove Albion in the third round of the League Cup. The game follows last weekend's 2-2 home draw in the Championship against Brighton.

The Royals made it to the third round after victories over Plymouth Argyle in round one and last night's penalty shootout victory over MK Dons - both at the Madejski Stadium.

Brighton have scored four goals in both of their League Cup fixtures so far this season. They started with a 4-0 home win over Colchester before reaching round three with a 4-2 away victory at Oxford United last night.

Can't see a thread already; so who do we want?

Personally I'd like Man Utd as would draw a decent crowd and would be fitting for Stam.

Draw is in around 30-45mins time.

Ball 22

One of the big teams at home would guaranty TV coverage...West Ham at there new stadium would be fun as well. If not away to Northampton or Gillingham for a bit of nostalgia. :D

Let's get Accrington after they knock Burnley out on penalties, then we can play Fosu and they can give him a polite round of applause.

Stuff dreams are made of.

Yeah Accrington in front of 1800 fans on a chilly evening would be great :D

Would be like that home game with Preston all those years ago on a cold and rainy Saturday afternoon when only 1850 bothered to turn up. Those were the days lol :lol:
It may have been 1500, cannot remember, need one of our statto's to correct me.
