Lolley gets the nod

Joe Lolley is voted Man of the Match by today’s match sponsors.

The referee is heartily booed as he leaves the field - the penalty he gave looked like the most dubious of the three that the two teams claimed between them.

FT Huddersfield 2-2 Reading

That’s it! We are heading to the Madejski Stadium for the replay on a week on Tuesday.

Wells levels late on to take it to a rematch

Closing stages

93. Well, talk about late drama! Harry Bunn has his legs taken in the box and the ref is certain this time.

Couple of desperate hacks clear. Town fans praying for a late winner - but just as important not to concede now!

GOAL TOWN!

Nahki Wells makes no mistake from the spot!


Huddersfield 2-2 Reading

Penalty Town!

91. Late drama...

Five minutes added

90 FIVE minutes for Town to find an equaliser.

Ishmael Miller on

89. Wells has an effort saved by Al-Habsi (again!). Miller on for Davidson, who has been very good today.

Goal Reading

87. Hal Robson-Kanu fires past Murphy to put the Royals into the lead. That is cruel.

Let off

84. What was I saying?

Reading’s McCleary blazes over in what is a definite let off for the Terriers and Wagner does indeed make a change - James Husband on for his Town debut to replace Sean Scannell.

Reading momentum

83. Beginning to look a tad ominous this. The Royals are feeling buoyant after the penalty decision and subsequent equaliser.

Maybe a change needed, Mr Wagner?

Save!

81. Great stop from Joe Murphy to prevent what looked a certain goal from Robson-Kanu. Athletic stop to tip it behind from the keeper.

Wells header

77. Oof! Al-Habsi tips Wells’ headed effort just over the top - Davidson again providing the cross.

Town chance

73. Harry Bunn shoots over the bar as Town try to respond. The crowd are furious and understandably so, but the players need to calm down. They didn’t deserve that and must now go to find another goal.

Reading equalise

Well, that’s another decision Town fans aren’t happy with. Free kick wasn;t given as Wells was tackled and Reading broke to score.

“You’re not to fit to referee” ringing around the John Smith’s Stadium.

Goal for Reading

70. Matej Vydra equalises with a deflected effort.

Penalty not given

68. Wow. The referee books Nahki Wells for tumbling down in the box under Al-Habsi’s challenge after being set free by Lolley.

That looked a penalty from this angle and the crowd are incandescent. Second time in two games Wells has been turned down for a pen.

Town pressure

66. Good spell here for Town - Reading doing a lot of defending as the fans sing David Wagner’s name.

A goal, you say?

Paterson strikes

He rose unchallenged but that was a good header from Paterson, powerful and into the corner - but the cross was perfect too, all credit to Davidson for that.

Paterson has done much more than last beyond the 45 minute mark but he does love the FA Cup - that is his first 5th goal in the competition.

Town 1-0 Reading!

GOAL! Paterson scores

57. Paterson heads home from from Jason Davidson’s cross and that is deserved. First real chance of the half and Town profit. That’s the one!

Dempsey heads clear

50. Dangerous looking free kick for the visitors after Lolley fells McCleary on the Town left but Dempsey rises highest to clear the danger.

No changes

47. Did I just type no changes at the breaK? I did indeed. Wagner looks to be happy so far - and the dominant display would justify that.

Need to shoot more and take a chance while on top.

Second half under way

Peep! Back to the action

Reaction

No arguments on the shooting part!

First half reaction

HT Huddersfield 0-0 Reading

All square at the break. Town have been the better side but tempo dropped towards the end of the half and they have struggled to really test the keeper.

Hogg booked

Hogg, the fouled man last time, gets his name taken to the incredulity of the Town fans.

Hudson header

45+2. Hudson’s header lacks the power to beat Al-Habsi, before Wells shoots too close to the goalkeeper after being released brilliantly by Bunn.

In other news, Muzzy Carayol has just put Leeds ahead.

McCleary booked

Gareth McCleary is first into the ref’s notebook after arriving late on Jonathan Hogg.

Three minutes added

45. 3 minutes of stoppage time at the end of the first half
