Reading 1-1 Wolves
Kenny Miller's equaliser held up Reading's promotion charge and lifted Wolves' play-off hopes.

The Royals took the lead after 22 minutes when Bobby Convey lashed home John Oster's pull-back.

But Wolves stunned the home fans when Miller capitalised on hesitancy inside the Reading box to slam a right-foot shot past Marcus Hahnemann.

Jeremie Aliadiere might even have snatched the win for Wolves but poked his shot over the bar from close range.

  • Reading manager Steve Coppell:
    "I thought we were going to see out the game.

    "We spent huge spells of the match on top and had more opportunities but in the end it was us who were having to defend well.

    "I thought at 1-0 up we had enough opportunities to kill the game off.

    "But credit to them, they came back well in the second half, and in the end they were looking the sharper definitely."

  • Wolves boss Glenn Hoddle:
    "They are the side of the moment, and rightly so, but there wasn't anything between the two teams.

    "From half-time onwards we could have caved in, but we stepped up a gear and they found it hard to keep with us, so credit to the lads.

    "I thought the front men did well for us. Frankowski's all-round play has surprised me, as well as his general awareness."
