Reading   1 - 1   Hull

Reading 1-1 Hull

Reading 1-1 Hull

Ian Harte struck from the penalty spot 12 minutes from full-time to atone for an earlier error and rescue a point for Reading against promotion rivals Hull.

The defender was at fault when his tame header back to keeper Adam Federici fell to on loan midfielder Corry Evans, who tapped in for a debut goal.

But Harte went from villain to hero when he scored the crucial penalty after Shane Long was felled in the box.

A point was little more than Reading deserved against a lacklustre Hull.

It was the hosts who made the brighter start and they had strong penalty claims waved away when Andy Dawson appeared to bring down Jimmy Kebe in the 18th minute.

Jobi McAnuff then twice thrashed off target, while Long forced a smart low stop from Hull keeper Brad Guzan with a glancing header as the hosts dominated the first half.

Evans' second-half introduction swung the tide, though, as the man on loan from Manchester United made the most of a simple finish from Harte's poor defensive header.

And Matt Fryatt came close to doubling their advantage when he shot wide in the 65th minute.

But just as Reading's challenge appeared to be petering out, McAnuff's pass sent Long through on goal and the Republic of Ireland international was brought down by Guzan.

This time referee James Linington did not hesitate in pointing to the spot and Harte emphatically slammed home his fifth goal for Reading this season.
