Brian McDermott's men knocked Peterborough out of the Capital One Cup in a 3-2 win at Madejski Stadium on Tuesday night - so the Royals will be in the hat on Thursday evening when the draw for the Third Round is made.
Goals from Pavel Pogrebnyak, Chris Gunter and a Nathaniel Knight-Percival own goal helped Reading reach the next stage against Posh and the Royals will learn of their next cup opponents after the Northampton Town vs Wolverhampton Wanderers match completes the set of Second Round ties on Thursday 30th August.
