Phil Parkinson’s side take on the Championship outfit in this afternoon’s early kickoff, and although Reading will not be quite as daunting a task as the likes of Chelsea and Sunderland, they remain another tricky opponent from a division above them.

Filipe Morais, one of the heroes of the fourth round win at Stamford Bridge, is expected to return to fitness for this match, while the visitors are without two key players in Anton Ferdinand and Jem Karacan.

A run to the semi-finals of this competition would no doubt be a remarkable achievement for Bradford, who also embarked upon a memorable run to the final of the Capital One Cup in 2013, where they were eventually beaten by Premier League opposition in Swansea City.

Still, all eyes will be on this match as the Bantams have truly provided all the magic of this famous old tournament this season.
