He said: "The league is the priority - everybody says that.
"But it would be nice to get through to the next round and get the chance to play some big teams. We got a big team earlier this season when we beat Liverpool in the Carling Cup and everybody is still speaking about that game."
Looking ahead to tonight's Championship match at Preston, Reich said: "We are confident we can get a result. On Saturday I thought we should have won the game, but they had a few chances too."
