Soccer – Wenger wary of ‘dangerous’ Reading


Arsene Wenger is expecting Reading to provide his Arsenal side with a stiff examination in Saturday’s FA Cup semi-final at Wembley.

The Gunners won the trophy last season, but only after beating another Championship outfit, Wigan Athletic, on penalties in the semi-finals before hitting back from two goals down to beat Hull City 3-2 in the final.
The Royals may be languishing in 18th place in the Championship table but Wenger is refusing to under-estimate Steve Clarke’s side.
The Frenchman said: “Reading have many players who have experience in the Premier League like Pogrebnyak, Mackie, Robson-Kanu and McCleary. They are all dangerous players.
“Steve Clarke has good experience and I’m sure he will prepare his team very well.”
Arsenal, 4/5 with Bet365 to win the FA Cup outright, are 11/2 to beat Reading 2-0.
