Reading Fixture News for Derby County & Wigan Athletic

The Royals will head to the iPro Stadium on Valentine's Day for a Saturday 3pm kick-off in the FA Cup, after the all-Championship tie wasn't picked for television coverage. It also means Reading's home match against Wigan Athletic has been moved back a few days.

Here's the full list of televised games, via The FA's Twitter account.

The other two ties that weren't picked for domestic television coverage are Stoke City's trip to Blackburn Rovers, and (perhaps surprisingly) Bradford City's home tie against either Sunderland or Fulham. With some all-Premier League ties and a few lower league sides still fighting in the competition, it's not too much of a shock that the TV companies didn't plump for the only all-Championship tie of the Fifth Round.

Adult tickets for the FA Cup tie are £15 so hopefully there'll be a good following heading up to Derby. More details here.

In addition, Reading's Championship match against Wigan Athletic at the Madejski Stadium, which was scheduled for February 14th, has been pushed back to Tuesday 17th and will now kick off at 8pm. It'll be the second evening home game in a row, as Leeds United come to town on the 10th. With both teams struggling, it's getting more and more important to grab all three points under the Mad Stad lights.
