The Crystal Palace striker has Tweeted his support for Reading.

Reading take on Arsenal this evening in an FA Cup semi-final at Wembley hoping to make it to their first ever final in the competition. The Berkshire club have had it good to get this far, having not met a single Premier League team until this meeting with the reigning champions.

The Berkshire club are going to need all the luck they can get.

One man who is certainly wishing them the best is Crystal Palace striker Glenn Murray.

The former Brighton man spent a period of the campaign on loan at Reading, after being told by Neil Warnock he was surplus to requirements at Selhurst Park.

He has since returned to Palace under Alan Pardew and scored six goals in seven Premier League appearances in a resurgent run of form.

But he is still hoping his former team-mates at Reading, where he scored eight goals in 18 appearances, can do the business this evening.

He sent out this Tweet earlier today:

Murray's attentions will now turn to West Brom, where he will hope to net past another former manager in Tony Pulis.
