The sixth round of FA Cup 2015/16 gets underway tonight as Reading host Premier League side Crystal Palace.
The match takes place at the Madejski Stadium, and will be shown exclusively live on BBC One.
The home side will be hoping to reach the semi-finals for the second consecutive year, but Brian McDermott’s Championship outfit know they face a tough task against their Premier League opponents.
Alan Pardew’s team knocked out Tottenham Hotspur in the last round, and will be keen to be among the last four for the first time since the 1994/95 season.
Palace have progressed on all three occasions they’ve met Reading in the FA Cup – in 1930-31 (after two replays), 1931-32 and 1952-53 (after a replay).
The last five league meetings between these sides in Reading have produced 24 goals.
Palace, however, have only won one of their last 11 league meetings with Reading.
Coverage starts at 7.30pm on BBC One and BBC One HD with live streaming on the BBC Sport website. Kick-off 7.55pm.
