READING will have to win a replay at Blackpool later this month to book their place in the fourth round of the FA Cup.

This was after the Royals were held to a 2-2 draw by the League One side.

The visitors took the lead after 28 minutes from Nathan Delfouneso.

Sam Baldock equalised for the home side on 56 minutes, but on the hour mark Armand Gnanduillet made it 2-1.

Danny Loader then levelled things again, before Gnanduillet was tripped in the box and given a great chance to win the tie for Blackpool.

However, the striker chipped the spot kick over the bar so it stayed 2-2 to the finish.

Therefore both sides will be in the hat for the draw on Monday evening.

Reading return to league action on Saturday with a home game against Nottingham Forest.
