FA Cup action on Saturday morning as giant killers Bradford take on Reading. Bradford beat Chelsea and Sunderland already and this represents a real chance for Bradford to make it to a semi final. John Stead has come full circle and has scored a couple of cracking goals in the cup already this season. Clarke and Hanson have actually been the goalscorers this year for Bradford in the league with sixteen goals between them. Can Bradford continue the giant killing when they face Reading tomorrow morning?
Reading come into this game having lost four of their last seven games. Amazingly though in the cup Reading have played all their games away from home. With a strikeforce containing Yakubu, Pogrebniak, Cox and Mackie there is plenty of attacking talent at Reading's disposal but they sit just above the relegation zone and are in real danger of getting dragged into a relegation battle.The FA Cup will give Reading an opportunity to forget their struggles in the league.
This is a real tough game to call. Reading are the team in the higher division but Bradford have been in far better form and have beaten both Chelsea and Sunderland in their last two games in the FA Cup. I am going to take Bradford to get the win here, while I think this one will be tight I just feel Bradford have the momentum and at 6/4 they represent the value bet at home.
