Bracknell Town welcome Reading Football Club to Larges Lane on Tuesday 27th November for what promises to be an intriguing clash in the Berks & Bucks County FA Senior Cup.
The last time Football in Bracknell asked the club, 800 tickets had been sold and we’re certain that number will have increased over the last 10 days.
It will certainly be a busy night at the Lane so we thought we’d pull together everything you need to know about the fixture.
Can I still get tickets?
Yes, Bracknell have confirmed that tickets will be available on the gate. They are priced £5 adults, £3 concessions and £1 under 16s.

All the latest news plus live broadcasts will be in our Facebook event, join it here:
What sort of Reading team will be playing?
It will be a Reading under 23 side taking part in the fixture meaning some of the Royals brightest youngsters will be on show, these include both English and Scottish internationals.
First team players that have featured for the under 23s recently include Callum Harriott, Pelle Clement, Omar Richards and Adrian Popa.
One player who won’t be there will be young forward Danny Loader who made his first team debut on Saturday. He will be with the Royals squad travelling playing at Leeds United.
What sort of team will Bracknell put out?
The Robins will want to field as strong a side as possible for the fixture. The Bracknell side has largely picked itself for the past 18 months but we wouldn’t be surprised to see a bit more game time for new signing Sean Moore.
Will I be able to park at Larges Lane?
In short, not unless you get there early.
Your best bet in Bracknell is either to walk to the ground or jump on a Courtney Bus (details here). Reading fans we’d urge you to jump on the train from Reading to Bracknell – it’s a straightforward walk to the ground from there.
The club have advised anyone driving to park at Braccan Walk car park in the Town Centre.
If you are driving to the Game on Tuesday Night please DO NOT attempt to Park in the Lane. Please PARK at Braccan Walk Car Park,The Ring,RG12 1DR. pic.twitter.com/xUdZ1wypen

What’s the County Cup all about?
The Berks & Bucks County FA hold knockout competitions for all levels and age groups. The Senior Cup is the highest level of the competition and includes teams affiliated with the County from step 5 of the English Football Pyramid up to the Championship.
The Senior Cup was altered 18 months ago to include step 5 sides meaning regular fixtures against higher level opposition for the likes of Binfield, Ascot United and Bracknell Town.
Reading have entered for the first time in several decades this season, joining MK Dons in the competition. Only Wycombe Wanderers among the professional sides in the County FA don’t have representation.
