Following discussions between Bradford City and Reading prior to Saturday's goalless draw, the club can now update supporters regarding details for the forthcoming FA Cup Quarter Final replay.

The replay is likely to be played on Monday 16th March at Reading's Madejski Stadium with an 8:00pm kick-off. This cannot be confirmed completely, however, until the other FA Cup ties have been played. 

No other dates are available that week because the FA are not allowed to schedule FA Cup games on the same night as UEFA fixtures, and there is a full programme of Champions League and Europa League games that week. 

As a result, City's away Sky Bet League 1 fixture at Scunthorpe United - originally scheduled for Tuesday 17 March 2015 - will now need to be rescheduled for a later date. 

Prices for the Reading replay would match those of the initial tie - adults £15, 65 & over/17-21 £10, 16 & under £5. Dates for ticket sales to be confirmed.  

Both Reading and the Bantams will be in the semi-final draw, which will be made at Old Trafford this Monday evening. 

City and Reading will share ball number TWO.

Former Manchester United goalkeeper Peter Schmeichel and Arsenal fan Dermot O'Leary will make the draw, which should occur around 9.45pm following the final quarter final game between the clubs, which kicks-off at 7.45pm. 

The draw will be screened live on BBC1, who are also showing the Monday's match, and via FATV.
