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.
