After beating League One side Walsall 4-0 at the weekend, Reading will host either West Bromwich Albion or Peterborough in the fifth round of the FA Cup next month.

The two sides drew 2-2 in a thrilling game at the Hawthorns yesterday, and will battle it out in the replay next Tuesday, with the winner visiting the Madjeski Stadium sometime across the weekend of the 19th-22nd of February. West Brom are currently 14th in the Premier League, whilst the Posh sit eighth in League One.

The Royals' last meeting with the Baggies was the thrilling comeback 3-2 win three years ago, whilst we also beat the Midlands side at this stage of the FA Cup in 2010 - goals from Jimmy Kebe, Brian Howard and Gylfi Sigurdsson sealing a famous win in the replay. Meanwhile in contrast, our last clash with Peterborough was an embarrassing 6-0 defeat in the League Cup in 2013. Our only ever FA Cup fixture with the Posh was in 1991, which the Biscuitmen won via a replay.

What do you make of the draw Reading fans? Optimistic? Let us know in the comments below.
