The Royals struck their finest form on Monday night as they put three past giant killers Bradford City in an FA Cup quarter replay at the Madejski Stadium.

Reading were two up inside ten minutes thanks to a fine header by Hal Robson-Kanu from a corner and a deflected Garath McCleary effort, that floated over Ben Williams.

After the Bantams went down to ten men, in form striker Jamie Mackie sealed the deal to send Reading to Wembley.

Fans favourite Danny Williams started in central midfield with Nathaniel Chalobah, and says he’s now eyeing up a scalp against Arsenal in his first trip to Wembley.

He told the club’s official website: “This is one of the highlights of my career, but we have Arsenal now and we are still two games away from winning it!

“I am not going to Wembley just to look around the stadium and enjoy the atmosphere, when I play at Wembley I want to win. So I want to win that semi-final.

“And before that we have a difficult game at Charlton on Saturday so we have to focus our minds on that now.”

Reading overcame fellow Championship sides Huddersfield Town, Cardiff City and Derby County to reach the quarter finals and now face holders Arsenal in the semi’s.

The last time they faced the Gunners in a cup competition was in the Capital One Cup, where they went 4-0 up but ended up losing the game 7-5, in one of the most famous come backs in football history.

Currently 17th in the Sky Bet Championship, Reading have amassed 44 points this season.
