Based on form etc - I'd say the best that could happen for us could be
Semi Final - Reading vs Sheffield Wednesday and Fulham vs Huddersfield
Final - Reading vs Fulham
Reading are Wednesday's bogey team and it seems we're Huddersfields currently.
In a head to head with Fulham and Reading it's actualy quite tricky to call though - We won against them at Craven Cottage 5-0 but then lost 1-0 at the Madejski.
Over two legs there's an obvious winner, but it's less predictable as they won one and we won the other.
Interestingly for me at least is that the team we played with at the Madejski was very different to the team we'd probably field now...
At the back we had Madl, Ream, Kalas with both Fredericks and Malone as attacking full backs.
Then our three furthest forward players were Martin (who won't be available and also is a liability), Cairney and Aluko...
Button was in goal and they beat us by getting on to the rebound of a saved penalty.
We've since taken the third CB out of our starting line-up and lead with more pace up front in Ayite/Neeskens and/or Sessegnon.
the Skysports headline for our loss against Reading - 'Reading squeeze past Fulham'
When we won 5-0 against reading we played with the team we have and play with most recently with Ayite, Aluko up front (although Martin was up front and scored a brace that game)... and Kalas Ream partnership supported by Fredericks and Malone in full back positions.
