Struggling Reading scrape point

Published Add your comment

Reading ended a run of seven consecutive defeats with a goalless draw in their Boxing Day bout with Swansea at the Madejski Stadium.

The Royals are still rooted deep in the relegation zone but they were the only one of the bottom three teams to get any kind of a result on Wednesday, while Southampton also drew.

It is a small step but stopping the rot was vital for Brian McDermott's men, who had come so close to earning a draw against Manchester City before Christmas.
