MATCH CENTRE: Reading v Albion

Baggies braced for Royal appointment (3pm ko)

ALBION will be backed by a sell-out away following as they travel to Reading bidding to make the FA Cup quarter-finals for a second successive season.

The club quickly sold their 4,000 ticket allocation in a matter of hours at the start of this week, ensuring fans will travel in number to Berkshire to get behind the Baggies at the Madejski Stadium (3pm ko). 

Having seen off Bristol City and Peterborough United in previous rounds, Tony Pulis will be hoping Albion can replicate the fifth-round success they enjoyed last year when his side saw off West Ham United to book their place in the last eight of the world's oldest domestic cup competition.

Albion will still be without Gareth McAuley, James Morrison and Callum McManaman due to injury, with Pulis adding at his pre-match press conference that at least four, maybe five players will miss the cup tie.

A minute's applause will take place ahead of kick-off to commemorate the life of Reading's all-time leading goalscorer Ronnie Blackman, who sadly passed away on Tuesday at the age of 90.
