2. FA CUP: Royals ready for Old Trafford
Surprise Reading faces one of the biggest tests of the season when it
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,
Bobby Convey should benefit
from Manager Steve Coppell's policy of rotating players. Convey didn't play last weekend after returning from
the USA-Mexico game in Glendale, Ariz.
Coppell knows all about Old Trafford and the FA Cup. He played more
than 300 games for United, including three appearances in the FA Cup
