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, while 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 final.
