The cheapest tickets in the Fifth Round by far. And we take on Premier League opponents at Madejski Stadium on Tuesday night. This, the Royals boss agreed after our win this weekend, is now the biggest game of our season...
“We’ve got a huge game for the club now against Sheffield United in the FA Cup on Tuesday night. And it’s a big test for us," he said.
"I’m going to play the strongest team I can. We’re playing a Premier League team here at home and I’m sure they will play the strongest team they can too.
"We’ll have a good atmosphere here, I know we will. Hopefully we’ll get a good crowd in because a place in the quarter-finals of the FA Cup is at stake.
"So as I say, we’ll count the bodies, see how Liam Moore is after his illness, see how Matt Miazga is after playing the full ninety this afternoon, and then I'll pick the strongest team in my mind who can have a go at getting this club into the last eight."
"We’re under no illusions about the task ahead of us," he continued. "Some big name teams might come here and maybe take their eye off the ball a little bit and think ‘It’s only Reading’. Sheffield United just don’t do that.
"They’ll come here and produce everything they do in Premier League games. It’ll be a really, really tough game for us. The whole country know what Sheffield United are capable of now.
"But it's exciting for the fans and the players. It will be all over on the night one way or another. If it’s a draw, it will end up being extra time and penalties.
"And it’s probably the biggest game of the season for us, because there is a quarter-final place at stake. It would be absolutely fantastic if we could leave here on Tuesday night knowing we were in the FA Cup quarter-final and bring some of that feel good factor to the club.
"And why not? This club has got a little bit of history in the FA Cup of late, with a few quarter finals and a semi-final not long ago.
"It is a distraction from the Championship, but it’s a nice distraction. And I'll pick the strongest side in my mind that can go and try to win the tie."
