Despite starting brightly, Mark Hughes's men fell behind against the run of play after 16 minutes. Kaspars Gorkss was quickest to react after Sean Morrison had slammed a header against the crossbar to give the Royals the lead.

Alex McCarthy was made to workin the Reading goal, twice being called upon to deny Adel Taarabt. The 22-year-old also had to be alert to tip Esteban Granero's free kick onto the bar.

The hosts had to wait until the 66th minute to find an equaliser and it came through Djibril Cisse. The former Liverpool striker got on the end of Jose Bosingwa's cross to give the R's hope of victory.

However, they were unable to breach the Reading defence once more as McCarthy made a number of good saves to earn a valuable point for Brian McDermott's side.

The result sees both teams stay in the relegation zone and without a win to their name this season.
