Royals earn valuable point

Published Add your comment

Ten-man Reading earned a valuable point in their battle against relegation with a goalless draw against UEFA-Cup chasing Blackburn.

But the scoreline tells none of the story in a game which was flat for an hour and then exploded into life with a controversial red card for Reading midfielder Marek Matejovsky.

The Royals, down to 10 men, then created the two best chances of the afternoon for Stephen Hunt and Andre Bikey and could have left the Madejski Stadium with a victory that would have virtually assured their top flight survival.
