Preston or Rochdale away please. Yes, this is very selfish of me. And I don't care.

Any London/London-ish based side away for me, again selfish reasons.

They beat Carlisle and I believe that of all the teams Reading have played in the league it’s Carlisle that have gone the longest gap since Reading last played against them (last game being May 1982).


So who does that leave that we've never played? Salford, FGR, Morecambe, Fleetwood?


Of the current 92 clubs, Reading have never played competitive games against

Accrington Stanley
Fleetwood
Forest Green Rovers
Morecambe
Newport County
Salford City
Wimbledon

Crawley and Stevenage have only been played in cup games.

Accrington and Wimbledon are different entities to those that existed previously, believe Newport are as well but not 100%


Newport's badge has 2 formation dates on it, 1912 and 1989 so I assume it's a continuation of the original club and we played them in the League Cup 5 years ago anyway.

yeah same. West London preferably, or one of the London 'big boys' away

Otherwise just a home game. Don't really care who against

I'd like to get Spurs, plenty of Spurs supporters in the family and my nephew who is a season ticket holder with me and my Dad supports both Spurs and Reading, he was 3 when we last played them, time to test the loyalties and all that.

CavershamRoyal Personally want Cambridge at home, if they get through. Otherwise, any home tie, preferably against lower league opposition. Nothing too dreary like Preston or Forest.

As always, Cambridge away.


Yeah, I don’t think we’re getting Cambridge.

still sheffield wednesday at home. They are struggling against Rotherham tonight and we wouldn't mess about second time around. Then a nice juicy tie in the next round
