Birmingham City or Torquay United will be the guest of Reading if the Baggies don?t prove to be a stumbling block in the replay.

Both replays will take place on 17th of January with the winners taking on each other on the 28th, subject to TV schedules.

Birmingham failed to overcome their league two opponents on Saturday at Plainmoor, the game ended 0-0 but could have been worse for the Premiership outfit had referee Stroud allowed Tony Bedeau?s ?goal? on seven minutes.

The Royals however must have a physiological advantage over West Brom. After the Baggies were handed the lead from the penalty spot through Gera they thought they had won the game only for Doyle to level things from the spot at the other end just two minutes later.

Here is the draw in full:

Stoke City/Tamworth v Barnsley/Walsall

Cheltenham Town/Chester City v Newcastle United

Coventry v Nuneaton Borough/Middlesbrough

West Brom/Reading v Torquay/Birmingham

Portsmouth v Liverpool

Leicester v Southampton

Bolton v Arsenal

Aston Villa v Port Vale

Brentford v Sunderland

Manchester City v Wigan/Leeds

Millwall/Everton v Chelsea

Preston v Crystal Palace

West Ham v Blackburn

Colchester v Derby

Charlton v Leyton Orient

Wolves v Burton/Manchester United
