Stevenage could face either Carlisle United or Sheffield Wednesday in the FA Cup fourth-round, should they beat Reading in a replay.

Boro will play away from home if they beat the Royals at the Madejski Stadium on Tuesday, January 16 after the sides drew 0-0 at the Lamex.

League Two Carlisle also held their Championship opponents to a goalless draw on Saturday afternoon with the replay being held on the same night as Boro’s.

Darren Sarll’s side have already played Carlisle this season and came away from Brunton Park 2-0 victors thanks to goals from Ben Kennedy and Tom Pett.

Stevenage have faced Sheffield Wednesday on two previous occasions, winning both, including a 5-1 victory at the Lamex in 2011.

Just one point separates Boro and Carlisle in League Two while Wednesday are struggling in the Championship, sitting in a disappointing 16th place after challenging at the top of the second tier in the past few seasons.

The tie will take place between Friday, January 26 and Sunday, January 28.
