Manager reaction

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

Reading boss Steve Clarke, speaking to BT Sport: "We hit the post twice and on another day we could have maybe nicked it 1-0. There was never really a moment in the game when I was worried. I think both teams will fancy their chances in the replay, so let's get it on."

When's the replay?

Bradford and Reading will lock horns once again on Monday 16 March in the replay at the Madejski Stadium. Reading have home advantage, but you would not rule Bradford out of anything. All to play for.

Player reaction

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

Bradford striker Jon Stead on BT Sport: "It was a dogfight. Two teams going at it 100% and it was a proper cup tie. We are disappointed. We feel we can do better than we showed today.

"We have done half a job but we have huge belief that we can still go through in the replay."

Manager reaction

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

Bradford City boss Phil Parkinson, speaking to BT Sport: "We have to give Reading credit they came here and made it very difficult with the extra man in midfield but I thought our lads did excellent. They were very professional and made sure we stayed in the game.

"I thought we got a bit of momentum in the second half and were the team in the ascendancy. We look forward to the replay."

Simon Latson: Survived the ploughed field. Wait to see what we can do on an actual football pitch!

"Bradford played the conditions well, especially the second half. First half it wasn't really a match: you hit the ball forward and we'll hit the ball forward.

"Reading have come and done a job. Their game plan was not to lose today, and it has worked. Back at the Madejski, it's a better surface and Reading should win it. Bradford might be in the same division as Reading next season so there is not much between the sides, but playing at home you should win.

"We came here anticipating a shock maybe. Both teams were evenly matched and the pitch was great leveller today."

"A great cup tie, really, really tightly contested as both sides gave their all. Three attempts hit the woodwork and what a hotly contested quarter-final this was. Both teams go into the draw for the last four but neither are through yet."

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

Alex Pearce is back on the pitch with a fresh pair of shorts and shirt on. Time is quickly running out for a winner though.

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

Alex Pearce receives treatment and is eventually able to walk to the edge of the pitch, where he strips off his shorts and shirt, which are covered in blood. Ironic cheers from the home fans as the Reading staff mop Pearce down.

Bizarre scenes, but play continues.

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

Alex Pearce goes up to challenge for a ball with Francois Zoko and is on the wrong end of a nasty clash of heads. Blood is pouring from his nose and there is a pause in play. Reading have used all their subs, if he can't carry on they will have to continue with 10 men for the final few minutes.

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

Four added minutes. Will anyone be the FA Cup hero?

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

Bradford fans have been hugely vocal for most of the afternoon but a nervy silence has descended over Valley Parade now. The Bantams have the ball but Reading are defending well at the moment.

Bradford will really want to find a winner. They won't fancy taking this tie to Reading and they have three minutes to find a goal.

"When that ball was bouncing around in the box there was an almighty scramble. The people around us thought it had gone in the net - I did as well - but somehow they kept it out.

"That's all Reading have got at the minute, just the counter attack. It's been all Bradford."

HITS THE WOODWORK

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

A big scare for Bradford as Reading twice go close in quick succession. First, Oliver Norwood's floated free-kick hits the post before Yakubu fails to get a decent shot away from a great position as Bradford struggle to clear.

SUBSTITUTION

Chalobah

Nathaniel Chalobah is not able to continue and he kicks off a flurry of changes. On comes Hope Akpan in his place while for Bradford, Francois Zoko is on for Billy Clarke and Mark Yeates takes the place of Billy Knott.

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

Into the closing stages and there is a pause in play as Nathaniel Chalobah looks to be having a bit of trouble with his vision.

On Yakubu coming on: "One thing you know - although I don't think he will enjoy the surface - is the song goes give him a chance and he will score. Let's hope he does."

Five live commentator John Murray adds: "Yakubu looking strong shall we say. Those blue and white hoops not doing him any favours."

SUBSTITUTION

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

Also a change for Reading as the hard-working Jamie Mackie is replaced by veteran forward Yakubu. Feed the Yak and he will score...

SUBSTITUTION

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

That's Filipe Morais' final contribution to the game as he is replaced by Andy Halliday. A DJ in his spare time, Halliday claims to have got the lads whipped up before each FA Cup game with his unique blend of house music. Will it do the business today?

Harry Kane v Charlie Austin

Stuie Neale: I would go for Charlie Austin, he has proven himself at all levels of the football pyramid.

George Craven: Only one way to know if its too early for Kane and that's just to play him. What's Roy got to lose? Everyone starts somewhere.

Adam Smith: It's too close to call so why not pick both? It would be one hell of a strike force.

Who should start up front for England? There are growing calls for Harry Kane and Charlie Austin to start. Get involved via

CLOSE!

Bradford are getting closer. Their set-piece play has improved immensely as the game has worn on and they have a free-kick on the right, midway inside the Reading half. Filipe Morais whips the ball in superbly and Andrew Davies rises to meet it, but his bullet header is just over. All getting a bit tense now.

"Bradford are running and running and chasing everything. It will be interesting to see how long they can keep it up. They are trying to force the game and push men forward. The substitutes will be very important for Bradford if they want to keep this up."

CLOSE!

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

Oh so close! Jon Stead is causing the Reading defence all sorts of problems now and he gets the ball on the right of the area, cuts it back for strike partner James Hanson, whose first-time effort skips inches wide of the post.

Reading have barely got outside of their own half but finally manage to get forward for the first time in a while as Nathaniel Chalobah fizzes in a teasing cross to the middle of the area, but Bradford keeper Ben Williams is out to claim confidently.

SUBSTITUTION

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

Reading make the first change of the game as Garath McCleary replaces Hal Robson-Kanu. Winger for a winger.

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

Jon Stead has come alive and is looking like the striker who caused Chelsea and Sunderland plenty of bother in previous rounds. He chases a ball over the top and leaves Michael Hector and Alex Pearce in his wake but Stephen Kelly gets across just in time to make the crucial block.

"You're attacking the end where your fans are banked up so let's have a go. It's just do Bradford have that quality in the final third? That's what is letting them down at the minute. But it's all Bradford.

"Reading manager Steve Clarke has got to be looking at his bench because they have come right off the pace. At the minute he has got people warming up."

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

Jon Stead and Billy Clarke combine again on the edge of the area, before the latter's shot is blocked. Reading have got some defending to do at the moment as Bradford fans sense the prospect of a goal.

Jammer, Brighton: It's going to be pretty gutting for Bradford to have knocked out Chelsea and Sunderland, then go out to Reading.

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

Another opportunity for Bradford as Billy Clarke flicks the ball into the path of Jon Stead, who shows neat footwork to get inside the area, spotting a gap in the Reading defence that gives him a chance to shoot on goal, but Michael Hector is across quickly to get the block in just in time.

There's 24,321 in attendance at Valley Parade and they are making an almighty noise. A really great atmosphere that the 4,336 Reading fans are more than playing their part in.

"They have got to keep their discipline. Hector got a bit tight on Stead who went down a bit easy (in the box) - have to say that.

"But Bradford pitting the pressure on for the first time here. The atmosphere is cracking."

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

Nathaniel Chalobah then concedes a free-kick just outside the Reading area. Filipe Morais steps up once again to take the set-piece, sending the ball towards the near post but a push on Chalobah ends the opportunity for Bradford.

Bradford City 0-0 Reading

A huge roar goes up as Bradford win a corner, their first of the game, but it is harsh on Jamie Mackie as replays show Billy Knott got the last touch. Filipe Morais swings the ball in but Nathaniel Chalobah powers it away with a clearing header.

Reading go up the other end of the pitch immediately and Nathaniel Chalobah fancies a shot from outside the area, but it is a half-hearted one as he drags it wide.

"What Phil Parkinson will have said at half-time is 'when we get in the final third just put the ball in the box. We have got Hanson and Stead and we might get a lucky bounce'. And it nearly happened there."
