It is Reading in the FA Cup Fourth Round

Reading sensationally beat Liverpool at Anfield tonight in their FA Cup third round replay. They scored from a penalty in the last minute of added time to bring the scores level at 1-1 and take the game into extra time.

Shane Long scored for the Royals in the first half of extra time and they held on to win 2-1.

New Burnley manager, Brian Laws and his assistant Russ Wilcox were at Anfield tonight taking notes ahead of our FA Cup 4th Round clash.

We will now play Reading at the Madejski Stadium in the FA Cup 4th Round on Saturday 23rd January (NOTE:Kick-off 12:45pm)

The Clarets will be hoping for a repeat of last season's Play Offs Semi Final 2nd leg when we defeated the Royals 2-0 at the Madejski after superb goals from Paterson and Thompson booked our place at Wembley.

At least it gives Laws a game to explore fully the team needed to defeat notlob. Anfield would have been a whole different ball game so to speak!

To be honest every game is a laugh, why else would I keep going to away games, if you start to take away games seriously my nurse would be one busy Ulrika!

I think I would have preferred to play Liverpool to be honest, if we lost against them nobody would bat an eyelid but Reading will be up for this one wanting to claim another Premier League scalp and if we lose it, it wont be good for morale with the new manager then having to take the team to Bolton for a crunch needle game

Tmp makes a good point, whcih I almost posted on here last night. The flipside is that a win would help morale, and a draw would result in useful money from a replay on the Turf, and welcome opportunities for the gaffer to work with his squad.

Well to be honest CP we might have stood a better chance of beating Liverpool based on their current form

Based on our current away form I struggle to find any away fixture that we have a chance of winning. MK Dons and Hartlepool so far this season both 2 -1 and one of those in extra time. Get your 10pence on a Clarets win 2 -1, I can see the picture developing now into a series of 2 -1 wins away from home.

Hopefully Brian will be a Laws unto himself in the next few away games and we can start to see our away form improve

Be positive folk, we have turned the corner, first away win on Saturday and then off on a long cup run

Yes. A remarkable run of form to finish in the top 4. Europe next season and Champions League success followed the following year by World Club success. I'll take an away win this season and survival!
