Tuesday 9 January
Here we go again as the Clarets try to get through to the fourth round of the FA Cup by beating an understrength, Reading Reserve team. Hopefully no rain this time to postpone the match like last Saturday. The possibility of playing Newcastle at St James Park in the 4th Round assuming the Toons can knock out Brum in their replay should be a strong additional motivation for the Clarets lads.
The teams were announced for the postponed match on Saturday and it would appear that both teams will go for a similar if not same line up
Reading name the same side that would have faced the Clarets but for the weekend postponement.
READING: Federici, Lita, Oster, Ingimarsson, Convey, Sodje, Seol, Bikey, De La Cruz, Long, Goldbourne.
Subs: Hahnemann, Hunt, Kitson, Harper, Pearce
Just because Little wont be playing, and Oster may well have a point to prove.
Burnley make one change from the side announced to start on Saturday
Hyde is not named in the squad and his place in the starting line-up is taken by Chris McCann.
BURNLEY: Jensen, Foster, McGreal, Thomas, Harley, Elliott, J O'Connor, McCann, Jones, Noel-Williams, Akinbiyi.
Subs: Mahon, G O'Connor, Branch, Lafferty, Spicer
Ade may be the key to this match in terms of his fitness level and how he links up with Gifton Noel-Williams and Steve Jones. Definite match winner when on form
Replay date (if required) : Tues, 16 Jan, 1945 GMT
Coverage on the BBC Sport website and BBC Radio Five Live
Referee: Rob Styles (Hampshire)
Well against an understrength Reading team, this match is likely to mean more to the Clarets than the Royals. The presence and fitness of Ade could be influential in deciding this match and it's assumed he will be in the starting line-up again. I think we can muster a 1-1 draw here and bring them back to the Turf but it wont be easy!
Back to the League and an away match to Saints at St Marys this Saturday 13th January 3pm KO.
