Preston v Reading

Preston 1-1 Reading

Preston   1 - 1   Reading

Jem Karacan's stunning long-range strike earned Reading a deserved point.

Keith Treacy put Preston North End ahead when Iain Hume chased a lost cause on the right wing and teed up the winger who converted at the near post.

But the Royals created the better chances and levelled after the interval when Karacan crashed home a delightful 25-yard half-volley.

The hosts had Darel Russell sent off for a second yellow card late on but neither side could fashion a winner.

Reading, who were without their influential captain Matt Mills because of suspension, made a slow start and Preston nearly went ahead when Billy Jones headed wide.

But Brian McDermott's men settled and a swift attack saw Shane Long pick out Jobi McAnuff who cut inside and smashed a looping shot against the crossbar.

Both sides were now looking lively but it was the home side who forged ahead in the 23rd minute when Hume's craft and guile allowed Treacy to score.

Zurab Khizanishvili went close to levelling but his header from Ian Harte's inswinging corner was superbly saved by Andy Lonergan.

However Reading's pressure paid off when Karacan cracked home a wonderful 55th-minute equaliser when North End only managed to half-clear another Harte corer.

McAnuff was then denied by Lonergan as the visitors looked for a winner before Russell saw red for tripping Jimmy Kebe - his second caution.

Hume came closest to finding a winner but his injury-time shot was comfortably held by Reading keeper Adam Federici.
