Reading's FA Cup clash with Watford has been moved forward to a 12.30 kick-off as the Football Association confirm times for the Third Round.

An all Championship affair between the Royals and the Hornets, the match will now take place on Saturday, January 7.

Having previously met last month, Slaven Bilic's side won 2-0 at Vicarage Road as they look for an immediate return to the Premier League.

Exiting in Round Three last season in embarrassing circumstances, losing 2-1 to non-league Kidderminster Harriers, Paul Ince's men will be looking a Fourth Round appearances for the first time in three seasons.

Having twice reached the semi-finals, most recently in 2015, a good Cup run is always appreciated in Berkshire.

Watford have twice made the final, last reaching the showpiece in 2019 and losing 6-0 to Premier League champions Manchester City.
