Liverpool post match reaction

Reading caretaker manager Brian McDermott:
"It was terrific. I thought we were full value for the replay and we might even have nicked the game.

"But to get another game at Anfield, we're absolutely delighted with that, especially for those 1,500 supporters who travelled to Plymouth when we didn't perform the other day.

"People said there was no pressure on us today but there is always pressure.

"The last thing we want to be is embarrassed in a game of football. A side like Liverpool can embarrass you if you are not careful."

Liverpool manger Rafael Benitez:
"They were pushing and working very hard from the beginning until the end so we had to do our job.

"It was a difficult game and the most positive thing is that we will play another game at Anfield.

"We know that we have two clear chances to win trophies - the Europa League and the FA Cup - so we will try our best in both and keep improving in the league."
