Reading or Huddersfield Town will take on League One side Walsall in the fourth round of the FA Cup after the draw took place this evening. The Royals and Terriers face off in the replay at the Madjeski Stadium on Tuesday 19th January, before the winner will host Walsall on the final weekend of January - we'll let you know of the confirmed date in due course.

The Saddlers currently sit in an impressive third in League One, and beat Championship side Brentford 1-0 in the third round last weekend.

The most recent meeting between the two clubs was in December 2003, when a 1-1 draw was played out at the Bescot Stadium with Nicky Shorey scoring a free-kick for the Royals. The most notable fixture is obviously the 2001 Division Two play-off final, which Reading lost 3-2. The two clubs have met twice before in the FA Cup, with one victory apiece - Walsall's win in 2003 needed a replay.

So what do you make of a draw? Let us know in the comments below!
