Highlights - Portsmouth 1-1 Reading

Portsmouth 1-1 Reading

Portsmouth   1 - 1   Reading

Reading denied Portsmouth their first win of the season in the Championship after Mali winger Jimmy Kebe struck four minutes from time at Fratton Park.

Dutch teenage forward Nadir Ciftci, making his first league start for Pompey, put the hosts ahead with a deflected shot in the seventh minute.

Influential winger John Utaka went off injured 10 minutes later.

And Kebe got on the end of a Gylfi Sigurdsson cross in the 86th-minute to deny cash-strapped Pompey victory.

Pompey started the match brightly and Ciftci's early strike - which came after he took a short corner from the right to Matt Ritchie before getting the ball back and beating Royals goalkeeper Adam Federici with a right-footed drive - was deserved.

Ritchie then tried his own luck from 25 yards out but the winger failed to test Federici.

After Joel Ward replaced Utaka, Reading forward Jobi McAnuff found space but flashed a right-foot drive over the crossbar before David Nugent fluffed a chance to double Pompey's lead by miscuing his volley from 12 yards out.

Iceland midfielder Sigurdsson was unfortunate eight minutes into the second half when his free-kick from 30 yards out came back off the post with Jamie Ashdown beaten.

Chances came and went for both sides, and it looked as though Reading would be consigned to a second defeat in two games until Kebe stabbed home from six yards late on.
