Cardiff City face Reading for the third time in 10 days tonight when they take to the field for their FA Cup fourth round replay.

Their first Cup game ended in a 1-1 draw on January 25, before the same result in the Championship on Friday night, so it could be yet another tight affair.

What time is Cardiff City v Reading?

Cardiff City v Reading kicks off at 7.45pm tonight (Tuesday, February 4).

Is the game being broadcast live?

No. The game is not being broadcast live but there will be highlights soon after the game on the BBC Sport website.

But you can follow live updates on WalesOnline this evening.

The televised replays are Oxford v Newcastle (BBC) and Tottenham v Southampton (BT Sport).

Will Cardiff's new signings be involved?

Cardiff bolstered their ranks in the form of Brad Smith, Dion Sanderson and Albert Adomah during the latter part of the January transfer window, with the latter two names being confirmed on deadline day itself.

But they are unable to take any part in tonight's fixture as they were not Cardiff players at the time of the first Reading Cup clash.

The club said: "The Bluebirds’ three January recruits, Brad Smith, Dion Sanderson and Albert Adomah are ineligible for Tuesday night’s replay as they weren’t City players at the time of the initial match."

What's the expected team news?

It's looking likely that Neil Harris will stick to a similar-looking lineup for tonight's clash to the last Cup encounter, but Lee Tomlin could be brought back into the mix.

Cardiff City XI for first Reading Cup clash : Smithies; Bacuna, Flint, Bamba, Bennett; Vaulks, Ralls; Whyte, Paterson, Murphy; Glatzel

Subs : Etheridge, Morrison, Pack, Nelson, Richards, Hoilett, Sang

What have the managers said?

Neil Harris:  "It’s an FA Cup replay under the floodlights – a great occasion.

"We have to enjoy these occasions and, as ever, we want to win every game.

"We want to be at home to Sheffield United in the fifth round, a team in the top six in the Premier League at the moment. We’ll have to put in a very strong performance against Reading on Tuesday evening to be there.

"The FA Cup is a competition with great history and one which I and this football club have been fond of. Winning games and getting through builds momentum and belief within the group."

Mark Bowen : "We will look to see what we can do to combat Cardiff, and what we can do to win the tie. We know how they’ll play and we’ll try to stamp our authority on the game.

"There are some tired lads in the dressing room after our trip on Friday, because of the pressure that they put you under.

"Whoever gets through has a home tie against Sheffield United to look forward to, which adds that little extra credence to it, so we’ll prepare as best we can and pick the right team to give us a chance to win the game."
