The FA Cup is here and the Royals field a much changed side to take on the same Luton side that knocked us out of the Carabao Cup earlier this season.

And one makes his professionaldebut - 18-year-old Oliver Pendlebury starts for the Royals this afternoon.

Two more make their full debuts for the Royals, Jeriel Dorsett starts in defence, while Jayden Onen is named in the eleven for the first time.

Sone Aluko and Sam Baldock provide the experience in the Royals squad - they are the only two players who are over the age of 23.

There is a 14th Academy graduate involved too - Gabe Osho starts for the hosts having rejoined the Hatters ranks following a loan spell at Yeovil Town.
