    Reading vs Newport County

    Reading have shipped 13 goals in their last two League Cup games – losing 7-5 to Arsenal in October 2012 and 6-0 to Peterborough in August 2013.

    The only previous League Cup encounter between the two sides came in Round 1 of the 1970/71 competition – the Exiles won 2-1 on that day.

    That defeat to the Posh last season was the first time in 16 League Cup games that Reading had failed to score.

    In their first League Cup appearance since 1987, Newport County made it into Round 2 before being beaten by West Bromwich Albion.
