We'll be making 11 changes, near enough. That changed 11 beat Hartlepool in the last round comfortably enough but Preston will obviously be a different proposition.

Federici
Smith Cargill Butcher god-knows-who
Atsu O'Kane MacDonald Stanislas
Kermorgant King

Ended up being 9 changes to the starting lineup by my count.

I see Preston have a loanee keeper from Sunderland, well he can't be any worse than the first choice Sunderland keeper they had on Saturday.

Glad I swerved this one, seems like a dire game and now the pain of extra time.

Both sides missing a host of chances second half by the sounds. PNE finally taking a chance 5 minutes from time.

2-1 down, i'd be surprised if we find a second.

Hopefully helps get him into your first team now, he should be really.

Also annoying for us at Reading, really struggling to replace him. Had we still got Federici we would almost certainly have 5+ more points in the league and be through in the cup. He only moved so he could be first choice in the Prem, if he hadn't been promised that i'm sure he would have stayed here.

That was an excellent game. Very entertaining stuff. We probably didn't deserve to win overall but great to watch I thought.

Browne and Wright were fantastic and should be the first names on the team sheet in my opinion. Browne's pen was shite though :lol:

Our penalties were poor in general really, made it too obvious which way they were going with them.

Hugill was good when he came on, won everything in the air although I thought his goal was a clear foul.

May is shite, I'm putting it out there early, he's a waste of money. He has no qualities, too small and too slow. I can't see what he's gonna bring to the team to improve it.
