Aston Villa >>

Reading first met Aston Villa in the FA Cup in 1911-12 when as a Southern League team they knocked out their First Division opponents in a replay. Meetings since have been few and far between, with Villa dominating. The most famous match was at the end of the 1970-71 season when a late Terry Bell own goal saw Reading relegated to the Fourth Division for the first time.
