travels to Old Trafford to face Manchester United in the round of 16 of
the English FA Cup on Saturday (TV: PPV-Setanta, delay, noon ET).
The Royals are sixth in their first season in the Premier League and
gave United a stuff test when they met earlier in the season, going
down, 3-2. American Marcus Hahnemann will
start in goal for the Royals,

than 300 games for United, including three appearances in the FA Cup
