1. Nahki Wells has a great goal scoring record:
The striker marked his 200th career appearance in the English game by firing in his 83rd goal, and 30th for Town.
As fellow Bermuda footballing ace Shaun Goater noted on Twitter, that’s a more than decent return.
It’s not all been plain sailing for Wells since his Town-record £1.5m move from Bradford City two years ago.
But he seems to be thriving under David Wagner’s training methods and tactics, and long may it continue!
2. Town can score a penalty after all:
Let’s face it, the reaction to being put on the spot hasn’t been great in recent times.
Vaughan missed another for Birmingham City against Bournemouth on Saturday, but Wells held his nerve in stoppage time to drive his effort in to earn a third-round replay.
Wagner confirmed after the game that Wells will take penalties if he is on the pitch.
3. There’s no doubting Town’s character and resilience:
That’s twice in three games that Wagner’s side have kept going to claw themselves back into a match.
Their responded to going behind with 10 minutes to go at QPR by forcing a point through Nahki Wells’ free-kick.
Reading gained the lead even later, but late pressure brought the penalty which Wells converted to keep Town in the FA Cup.

4. Kyle Dempsey can be a real asset:
The £300,000 signing from Carlisle United has had to be patient since joining Town.
But he has shown both ability and versatility in the 14 games (five starts) he has figured in.
As well as the midfield role he played for the Cumbrians, the 20-year-old has featured in both full-back roles for Town coming on in place of the injured Tommy Smith on Saturday.
His recent displays will have won him plenty of admirers.
5. David Wagner will change his system – in exceptional circumstances:
The head coach has made no secret of his liking for 4-2-3-1.
But with his team chasing Saturday’s tie, he went to three at the back and pushed captain and centre-back Mark Hudson up front alongside Ishmael Miller and Nahki Wells.
“In the cup, it’s win or die, or in this case, win or draw!” explained the German.
