These two sides drew 2-2 in the first meeting and now it’s back to Bloomfield Road for the reply. Blackpool didn’t play at the weekend so they’ve been rested since the 2-2 draw, however, the League One side are winless in their last six matches after a good run. They’ve lost their last two home matches 1-0 and could be looking at another defeat against Reading here. You have to think the Tangerines had their chance in the first tie after leading twice, now I’m predicting Reading to go on and finish the job this week.
The Royals somehow failed to claw their match with Nottingham Forest back to 1-1 at the weekend – Forest scored in the 96th minute only for Reading to go up the other end of the pitch and equalise. That has kept their unbeaten run going to eight matches now and are tipped to pick up a close-fought win in this game, setting up a fourth-round tie against either Cardiff City or Carlisle United.
