Reading held West Ham to a 1-1 Boxing Day draw at Upton Park after battling for over an hour with 10 men.

Midfielder Brynjar Gunnarson was shown a straight red card after 28 minutes for a dangerous two-footed lunge on Hayden Mullins.

West Ham took the lead with a strike from Nolberto Solano just before half-time but they could not shake off the Royals, and Dave Kitson scored the equaliser after turning onto a neat through-ball from Nicky Shorey to beat Robert Green.
