Draw sends Royals second

Published Add your comment

Brian McDermott's Reading moved above West Ham into second place in the npower Championship but the Royals' run of eight straight wins came to an end with a 1-1 draw at Doncaster.

McDermott's men could have gone level on points with leaders Southampton but were left fighting to avoid defeat after Kyle Bennett gave the hosts a 27th minute lead at the Keepmoat Stadium.

Alex Pearce headed home Ian Harte's free-kick in the 51st minute to claim a point for Reading, who are now two points adrift of Saints while Rovers remain rooted in the relegation zone.
