DONKEY Derby County 2-2 Reading

Reading twice fought back from a goal down yesterday evening at Pride Park in the televised game to earn a point. A side unsettled by changes forced and unforced struggled to settle into a decent pattern of play in the first half and fell behind to an opener from Seth JOHNSON just past the half hour. The lead lasted barely a minute before DOYLE levelled with a great header from Little's cross, but Reading fell behind undeservedly after the break when JOHNSON volleyed in impressively before an 88th minute point-saver from substitute Shane LONG rescued the unbeaten run when he scored a close range header after Sidwell knocked Shorey's corner back across the back.

Reading: Hahnemann, Murty (Harper, 86), Shorey, Ingimarsson, Sonko, Little, Sidwell, Gunnarsson, Convey (Long, 70), Doyle, Hunt (Oster, 81). Subs not used: Stack, Makin.

Floyd's Favourite: Doyle.
