Wells Earns A Replay

Huddersfield
2 - 2
Reading

John Smith's Stadium

09/01/16

Attendance: 9,236

Referee:

The Huddersfield run in the FA Cup is continuing for at least one more game, with a replay needed, after the third round draw with Reading at the John Smith's Stadium on Saturday.

A lead was lost before a late equaliser, when Nahki Wells scored from the penalty spot, saw Huddersfield earn a two-two draw.

The deadlock was broken just before the hour mark when Jamie Paterson headed home a Jason Davidson cross beyond Reading 'keeper Ali Al-Habsi with Matej Vydra equalising in the final 20-minutes as his effort deflected past Huddersfield 'keeper Joe Murphy.

With just three-minutes left, and after Vydra also appealed for a penalty, Hal Robson-Kanu looked as thought he had won it for the visitors but the foul on Harry Bunn, which Wells converted (having previously been booked for a dive when he felt he should have had a penalty, soon after the opening Town goal) earned a draw.

These were the other results.

Some interesting results (so far), with some upsets, but on the whole those expected to go through did go through or at least remained in the competition! Well, I would say anyway.

But the stand out results, with them causing upsets to progress, have to be the wins for Walsall, Colchester and Peterborough beating Brentford (Bees boss Dean Smith's former side) one-nil, Charlton two-one and Preston two-nil respectively, to put all of the League 1 side through against the Championship sides to see them into the next round keep those cup dreams alive.

The win of the round, (so far) has to be the three-two win for League 2 side over Swansea at the Kassam Stadium, which is almost certainly the win of the round!

Mentions have to go to Wycombe for holding struggling Premier League side Aston Villa to a one-one draw at Adams Park with Eastleigh (with the game eventually going ahead after a number of pitch inspections) denied a win by a late Bolton equaliser in a one-one draw.

Portsmouth who were also within a couple of minutes of beating Ipswich who grabbed a two-two draw late on at Portman Road with League 2 promotion rivals Northampton also involved in a two-all draw with another Championship side MK Dons with one more two-two draw seeing a dramatic injury-time goal from West Brom denying struggling Championship side Bristol City a win over the Premier League side.

Following the draw we know our name will be in that pot for the draw for the next round, which takes place on Monday night and will be taken as long as the replay is won!
