Young Magpies to face Reading in Premier League Cup
Newcastle United Under-23s will travel to Reading in the Premier League Cup round of 16.
Ben Dawson’s side secured their place in the knockout stages by progressing from the group stage, where they faced Notts County, Leeds United and Southampton.
Three wins and two draws proved enough to see the Magpies through, and their reward is a trip to Reading, who progressed from a group containing Fulham, Birmingham City and Colchester United.
United’s tie against the Royals will take place between Thursday, 14th March and Sunday, 17th March, with the winners advancing to the quarter-finals.
Further details will be confirmed in due course.
