Peterborough United will play away to Championship side Reading in the fifth round of the FA Cup, if they beat West Brom in their fourth round replay.

Reading, semi-finalists last season, thrashed another League One promotion hopeful Walsall 4-0 in the fourth round on Saturday (January 30).

Posh have played Reading just once in the FA Cup, a second round tie in the 1991-92 season when both sides were in the old Third Division.

It was 0-0 at London Road before Reading won the replay 1-0.

The FA Cup fifth round is scheduled for the weekend of February 20/21. Posh are due to play Millwall away in League One on February 20.

Posh earned their place in the fifth round draw by twice coming from behind to draw 2-2 at Premier League West Brom yesterday. Recent signing Shaquile Coulthirst and substitute Jon Taylor scored the Posh goals.

Posh will host the replay against the Baggies on Tuesday, February 9.

Posh have not reached the fifth round of the FA Cup for 30 years when John Wile’s Fourth Division side were beaten in a replay by Second Division Brighton.
