Reading FC’s Potential Cup Opponents Revealed

But there is the small matter of a third round replay first.

If Reading beat Stevenage in their FA Cup third round replay, they will visit Carlisle or Sheffield Wednesday in the fourth round.

The Royals drew 0-0 at the Lamex Stadium on Saturday, with the replay in Berkshire arranged for Tuesday 16th January, at 8pm.

Similarly, the Cumbrians (13th in League Two) and Owls (16th in the Championship) also played out a goalless draw at Brunton Park and will go again next week.

Whilst we played Wednesday in the second tier in November and will do so again in April, we have not faced Carlisle since May 1982 - a 2-2 draw in the old Division Three.
