After last Saturdays impressive draw against Premiership giants Liverpool, the Royals head to Anfield with a giantkilling in their sights! A full match preview is here.....
Reading manager Brian McDermott-
'I`m sure Rafa will field a strong team as like us they didn`t have a game this weekend, but if you ask any footballer they`ll say that they always want to play against the best players in the game.'
'We have to make sure we are prepared as well we can be and we`ll be looking to win the game and play a full part in the fixture and progress into the fourth round. We`ll speak about the history of the place before the game and I think it`s important that the players do relish the experience and enjoy it.'
Liverpool are expected to field a strong line up including the likes of Torres and Gerrard for this 3rd round replay. Glen Johnson, Martin Kelly and Albert Riera are all injured whilst Javier Mascherano is suspended.
Spanish striker is one of the hottest properties in the Premier League but Matt Mills kept him very quiet in the first game. He will have to have another excellent game to subdue him again.
The Royals will have to do without loan signings Gunnar Thorvaldsson and Andy Griffin who were not registered for the first game, so cannot play. Marek Matejovsky returns from injury but is unlikely to start with McDermott keeping faith with the side that got a draw at the Madejski Stadium.
Scored in the first game between the sides and will be keen to impress again, especially as he is a boyhood Man Utd fan!
Saturday 2nd January 2010, Reading 1-1 Liverpool.
Premiership ref Phil Dowd will take charge of the game.
Despite holding the Reds in the first game, I can only predict a home win. Liverpool 3-0 Reading.
