Adam Federici is confident Reading can cause an upset by knocking Manchester United out of the FA Cup.
The two sides meet in a fifth round replay at The Madejski Stadium on Tuesday, following a 1-1 draw at Old Trafford.
Federici, who has taken Marcus Hahnemann's place in goal in the FA Cup, produced two outstanding saves in the first match.
And the Australian keeper feels Reading have enough belief to advance to the quarter-finals by beating the Premiership leaders.
"We believed fully when we went up there that we could have beaten them and we have a better chance now," said Federici.
"We will be underdogs again, but that's all right with us because it gives us nothing to lose.
"Man United are sick of seeing us this season and won't be looking forward to coming down again to The Madejski.
"We went up there and did well, so we have got to be confident in ourselves.
"I think we can cause an upset."
