Reading will be making the trip to face Manchester United in the Third Round of this season's Emirates FA Cup.

The Royals last faced Manchester United at the same stage of the competition during the 2016/17 cup campaign.

The Royals entered the competition at the Third Round stage alongside Premier League and fellow Championship clubs, with each of England's top six divisions represented in what is one of the most famous occasions of the football season.

Reading made it through to the Fourth Round last season, with Sheffield Wednesday denying the Royals a place in the last 16 at Hillsborough back in January.

A date and ticket details for this tie are to be confirmed in due course, with matches taking place between Friday 4th - Monday 7th January 2019.
