Hillsborough awaits as Burton trip switches to midweek

A Friday night Fourth Round fixture and a midweek trip to the Pirelli to end the month!

17 January 2018

Our 3-0 Third Round win over Stevenage on Tuesday night means the Royals will travel to Hillsborough to face Sheffield Wednesday in the Emirates FA Cup on Friday 26th January, kick-off 7.45pm.

Jaap Stam's side knocked their League Two opponents out of the competition courtesy of a hat-trick from Jon Dadi Bodvarsson in a replay at Madejski Stadium on Tuesday night.

And the Royals went into the game considering a trip to one of potentially three different venues at the end of this month, dependant on the result of the replay.

On the same evening, Carlisle United were edged out of the cup by Sheffield Wednesday; Marco Matias and Atdhe Nuhiu scoring the goals that settled that replay at Hillsborough. So the Royals now know they will be heading to Sheffield on the Friday night in the Fourth Round.

The cup tie against Jos Luhukay's Owls will be played on the Friday night because Wednesday's local rivals, Sheffield United, host an FA Cup fixture against Preston at Bramall Lane on the Saturday afternoon.
