Here is how we predict West Bromwich Albion will line up against Reading this weekend:
West Bromwich Albion travel to the Madejski Stadium on Saturday to take on Reading in the fifth round of the FA Cup.
The Baggies needed a replay to get past Peterborough United in the last round, with Tony Pulis’s side going behind in that match before ultimately coming out on top in a penalty shoot-out, while Reading won 4-0 against Walsall to book their place in the fifth round.
The Royals are currently 15th in the Championship, 14 points outside the play-off places and nine points clear of the relegation zone, so in essence all they have left to play for this season is the FA Cup.
West Brom got a much needed victory at the weekend when a Salomon Rondon goal proved enough to defeat Everton 1-0 at Goodison Park so they will be looking to build up a head of steam by defeating Reading in their own backyard.
In early team news, West Brom are without James Morrison and Callum McManaman due to injury while Gareth McAuley is rated at 75 per cent to recover from a hamstring injury.
