The Royals reached this stage after staging a come-from-behind victory against QPR last night, while the Gunners put six past League One side, Coventry.

“It is a good draw, we’re really happy with it,” McDermott said.

“I am sure we’ll have a few people at the Madejski Stadium for that.

“We look forward to that but before that we have a big game against Newcastle that we’re really looking forward to and tonight’s result will be important going into that.”
