    Time:90'
    • Everton
    • Reading
    • 90+5' There goes the final whistle! All over. Reading dump Everton out of the tournament. A stunning result for the visiting side as Everton are booed from the park.
    • 90+3' Time ticking down on Everton's hope. Mills makes a superb intervention to deny Artea time and space.
    • 90+1' Kebe on the break, but he fails to pick out a team-mate. Chance gone before Everton win a goalkick.
    • 90' Going to be FIVE minues added to this match. Time yet for the home team.
    • 89' Arteta's cross is met by Anichebe, but he is facing the wrong direction. Nowhere to go for the home attackers as we head for time added on.
    • 88' Neville makes way for Jose Baxter. All or nothing now for Everton.
    • 87' Robson-Kanu runs the ball out of play deep in the home half. That will eat up a few seconds. Time running out for the home side.
    • 86' Simon Church arrives to replace the tireless Hunt. Meanwhile, Neville has throw-in out wide which is cleared by Leigertwood.
    • 85' McCarthy comes from his line to punch out Baines's free-kick. Anichebe takes a tumble under pressure from Mills. Never a penalty despite the claims.
    • 84' Time in short supply for Everton as Arteta is bundled over by Gunnarsson. Free-kick to the home side.
    • 83' Anichebe wins a header on, but the ball races straight through to McCarthy. Few problems for the visiting team.
    • 82' Rodwell opts to go for goal from 25 yards. Always rising over the bar. Reading so close to a famous success.
    • 81' Change for Reading as McAnuff departs injured to be replaced by Hal Robson-Kanu. Hamstring injury.
    • 80' Strong appeals for a handball in the area against Harte from Anichebe's header. Not sure if he touched it with his hand in the box. Nothing doing from the referee.
    • 79' A wonder save from McCarthy! Saha's cross is headed down by Beckford, but McCarthy throws himself across the goal to keep out Osman's shot. That was a miracle stop.
    • 78' Harte enjoying more time and space down the left flank. He drills a ball into the area, but bounces in front of Howard, who picks it up. Everton can go again.
    • 77' McCarthy misses Baines's corner. Saha fires in the volley, but think that hits Beckford in the box before flying to safety. Everton becoming desperate.
    • 76' Kebe dashes backs to tackle Baines. Corner to the home side.
    • 75' Hunt nudges the ball to Tabb. He sees a shot deflect off Neville and fall wide of the target. So close to the killer second goal.
    • 74' Arteta opts to bang a cross into the box, but an easy take for McCarthy. All so predictable from Everton.
    • 73' McAnuff wins the free-kick from Neville, who halts the run of the visiting player. Clock is ticking down on Everton's hopes. No sign that they are going to get out of this match with a win or even a draw.
    • 72' Mills covers the run by Beckford. He tries to get the shot away, but the visiting skipper does enough. Superb defending as McCarthy collects safely.
    • 71' Hunt break from deep. His cross is nodded out by Neville before Tabb smacks a shot over the bar.
    • 70' Mills attacks the corner from Harte, but beaten in the air by Rodwell.
    • 69' Harte goes down in his own box next to Beckford, and the former Ireland defender earns himself a free-kick. Kebe's cross is headed out by Baines. Reading have a corner.
    • 68' Reading heading for the last eight unless Everton can uncork some magic. Baines has hit so many crosses this evening, but so many have been headed out by a black shirt.
    • 67' Hunt plays in Long with a nice little pass. He swivels smartly in the area, but drags his shot wide of the target. Decent play by Reading on the break.
    • 66' Harte heads Arteta's delivery over his own bar. Another corner to Everton. Gunnarsson and Jagielka warned for pushing in the area before a black shirt heads clear from Arteta's next corner.
    • 65' Osman chips the ball to Beckford. Neville picks up out wide, but Gunnarsson is there to clear the cross away from Osman. Corner to Everton.
    • 64' Kebe goes down under the tackle from Baines. Catches the Reading man late. Another booking. Five now in this match.
    • 63' Beckford heads over the bar from the longish ball by Baines. Well over. Reading will take their chances with those attempts.
    • 62' Anichebe tries to cushion a header down from the cross by Baines, but too much power on the header and McCarthy collects. Idea was right, but Saha was never reaching it.
    • 61' Beckford applying the pressure to Mills, but the Reading skipper takes no chances as he knocks it out of play. Solid defending.
    • 60' McAnuff tries to beat Neville, but he does too much with the ball as it runs out of the park. Stupid play. Should have got the cross in earlier.
    • 59' Neville catches McAnuff. He is booked for that one. Chance for Reading to throw a ball into the area.
    • 58' Anichebe makes a tackle on McAnuff out wide. Reading get the throw-in. Everton back in possession with Arteta.
    • 57' Everton still lacking that real injection of pace in their play. They are doing lots of pretty movements with the ball, but it is all being played in front of Reading.
    • 56' Rodwell matches the run of Kebe to earn Everton a goalkick. The Reading wide man is showing some real purpose on the ball. He is a handful.
    • 55' Beckford slowly starting to get to his feet. This is the last thing that Davie Moyes is needing. Didn't look too much in that challenge by Harte. Reading give the ball back to the home team and on we go.
    • 54' Anichebe puts the ball out of play. Beckford is needing a bit of attention after a collision with Harte.
    • 53' Hartle hammers a free-kick at the target from 30 yards. Sails narrowly wide of the target. Terrific effort from Harte. Not sure Howard was getting there.
    • 52' Poor effort from Tabb. In a fair bit of space outside of the Everton box, but the shot is straight at Neville, who has time and space to control the ball and clear.
    • 51' Powerful play by Anichebe as he eyes up a shot at the goal. Doesn't get hold of it from 25 yards as the shot trundles wide.
    • 50' Saha slips the ball to Arteta 25 yards out. He takes one look at goal before smashing a shot wide of the target. More like it from the home side.
    • 49' Kebe picks up a long ball from McAnuff. So much time and space, but his control lets him down as the ball runs out of play under pressure from Baines.
    • 48' Saha plays in Beckford. Fine run and shot, but McCarthy makes the save down low. Better stuff from Everton.
    • 47' Victor Anichebe has replaced Coleman with Jermaine Beckford on for Diniyar Bilyaledtdinov at the break for Everton. No major surprise to see those changes.
    • 46' Teams out on the pitch and we are ready to go in this second period. Moyes seeking a major improvement.
    • 45+1' Neville's free-kick from the back is caught by McCarthy and that is half-time. Boos ring out around the ground. Reading hold a 1-0 lead. All to play for in this second period.
    • 44' Arteta throws over the corner. Met by Osman, but just over the bar with his header. Great leap by Osman. One minute to be added in this half.
    • 43' Arteta sees a free-kick flick up off the top of the wall and over for a corner.
    • 42' Booking for Leigertwood for a late foul on Saha. Free-kick to the home side.
    • 41' Tabb makes a run into the home area, but Hunt goes for goal. Tries to chip Howard. No chance from that range.
    • 40' Kebe with a ball into the home box. Met by Long on the edge of area. Blocked by a blue shirt. Bilyaletdinov is taking some fearful stick.
    • 39' Khizanishvili doing some sterling work after Saha tried a shot from some distance. All very scrappy, but this all suits Reading.
    • 38' Saha takes a tumble under pressure from Tabb, but no free-kick. Poor decision. Should have been a free-kick.
    • 37' Osman penalised for a handball. Everton lacking any real creativity in their movements. All becoming a bit predictable as Khizanishvili thumps the ball up the park.
    • 36' Distin out to make sure Kebe can't get a cross in. Everton struggling to impress themselves upon this visiting side.
    • 35' McCarthy races from his line to thump the ball away. Looked like Harte had that under control, but the keeper was taking no chances.
    • 34' A long ball into the area from Baines. High and hopeful more than anything else. Well out of play and that is a goalkick to the visitors.
    • 33' Harte sends the free-kick into the box. Khizanishvili picks up the loose ball before heading backwards with it. Reading keeping the ball well.
    • 32' Rodwell takes out Gunnarsson. He is booked for a sliding tackle that was a good bit late.
    • 31' Osman forces enough pressure on the ball to force it out of play with Mills well up the park seeking a second goal.
    • 30' Osman passes to Rodwell, who finds Saha. Arteta plays the ball out to Neville, but an easy take for McCarthy. Ball had drifted out of play. Goalkick to Reading.
    • 29' Long guilty of fouling Jagielka. Reading with their tails up all of sudden. The Championship side have a goal to cling on to.
    • 28' Hunt flicks McAnuff's corner over with the back of his head. Everton suddenly looking a bit groggy.
    • 27' Almost a second! Kebe races beyond Distin, but straight at Howard, who stands tall to make the block. Solid save, but what a chance to move 2-0 ahead.
    • 26' Nobody saw that one coming. A year after they beat Liverpool at Anfield, are Reading on the verge of a famous Cup double on Merseyside?
    • 25' GOAL FOR READING! Ball breaks to Mills from Hartes's corner. He wins the first header before smashing a volley into the net from 12 yards. No chance for Howard.
    • 24' Everton come again. So far, so good for the home team, even without a goal. Leigertwood sees a shot deflected past a post. Fine bit of play.
    • 23' Arteta's delivery is nodded away from the visiting defence before Khizanishvili makes a couple of timely headers out of the area to relieve the pressure.
    • 22' Saha sees his shot charged down at the edge of the area, but there is going to be a booking for Khizanishvili, who has brought down Osman.
    • 21' Hunt tackled by Distin and that is a corner to Reading, but Harte's corner is cleared by Everton, who race to the other end of the park.
    • 20' Beckford is finally at the ground to take his place among the home substitutes after his problems in getting to Goodison from a traffic problem.
    • 19' Jagielka tugs away at the shirt of Long. Reading have a free-kick chance, but the dead ball is cleared by Baines from the danger area.
    • 18' Neville on the charge for the home side. He slides the ball to Arteta, who in turn picks out Baines. Fine shot by Osman, but easy enough save for McCarthy from the edge of the area.
    • 17' Lovely delivery from Harte into the heart of the box. Met by Long, but his header is collected by Howard. No sweat for the home goalkeeper.
    • 16' Everton have ousted Scunthorpe and Chelsea to reach this stage. Looking good so far to continue their run, but Reading threatening on the break.
    • 15' Great tackle by Rodwell on Hunt. Saha picks up the ball in the forward areas, but a breakdown in communications sees Kebe collect the ball.
    • 14' Davie Moyes emerges from his technical area to offer his views. The big Scotsman is demanding his side continue this positive start to the evening.
    • 13' Superb cross from Osman to the back post, but Coleman heads down and over the bar. That should have been the opening goal for the home side. Great chance gone.
    • 12' Khizanishvili whacks the ball away after it breaks to him from Osman. Everton dominating possession.
    • 10' Diniyar Bilyaletdinov throws over the corner, but an easy take for McCarthy before Arteta fails to beat the first man with a free-kick moments later.
    • 9' Great cross from Baines into the area. Looked destined for the head of Rodwwell, but Leigertwood arrives to nod over the bar.
    • 8' Free-kick chance for Everton from out wide on their own left flank. Arteta and Baines standing over this one.
    • 7' Saha and Arteta keeping the ball before Khizanishvili breaks up the play. Everton go into this one on three defeats from 21 games.
    • 6' Hunt tries to pick out Kebe. Appeals for obstruction against Baines, but the referee waves play on. On we go.
    • 5' Howard out to hammer the ball off Long for a throw-in before Neviile takes the throw-in. Everton on the ball.
    • 4' Distin just making sure Hunt can't win any possession. He clears up the park. Reading getting plenty of bodies back as Mills clears the ball away from Saha.
    • 3' Rodwell tackles Kebe. Great tackle by the Everton man. Osman picks up in the middle of the park. A bigger crowd in for this one than in the last round against Chelsea.
    • 2' Mikele Leigertwood fouls Mikel Arteta. Early free-kick to Everton, but Reading regain the ball. Fine cross by Kebe, flicked on by Long, but easy stop for Howard.
    • 1' We are off and running in this one. Everton in blue, Reading in black.
    • 19.25 Jermaine Beckford has been caught up behind a traffic accident. He has yet to arrive at the ground, but has been named among the substitutes. Looking like a nice night for a game of football as the teams trot out.
    • 19.20 Reading manager Brian McDermott is vowing to attack this evening. "It's a great game, it's exactly what we want. We are trying to get into the quarter-finals of the FA Cup for the second year in a row and are playing against a team steeped in history with a great manager and good players. We are looking forward to having a real go and trying to get through. But we'll only enjoy it if we win and get through. Getting results is the only way to enjoy a game."
    • 19.15 Jack Rodwell and Diniyar Bilyaletdinov replaces the injured Marouane Fellaini and Tim Cahill for Everton with Saha given the nod up front. Zurab Khizanishvili and Brynjar Gunnarsson replaced the injured Ivar Ingimarsson and Shaun Cummings for the visiting side.

    • 19.00 Everton manager David Moyes is not certain whether the win on penalties in the previous round over Chelsea will mark a turning point in their season. "I don't think we have had our feet off the ground for a long time. We have done nothing this year to jump up and down about and say we are doing well. We have done nothing this year to jump up and down about and say we are doing well."
    • 18.55 READING TEAM NEWS: Midfielder Marouane Fellaini is a major doubt after aggravating an ankle problem against the Wearsiders. Alex Pearce remains sidelined with his thigh strain so former Blackburn man Zurab Khizanishvili is in line to start. Right-back Andy Griffin missed out at the weekend with an Achilles injury, meaning Shaun Cummings will deputise once more.
    • 18.50 EVERTON TEAM NEWS: Everton striker Louis Saha is in contention after escaping unharmed from a car crash on Sunday night.
