Sheff Utd   1 - 1   Reading

Sheffield United v Reading

Sheffield Utd 1-1 Reading

Sheffield United claimed a much-needed point against Reading as substitute Daniel Bogdanovic held his nerve to convert an 88th-minute penalty.

The Royals dominated most of the game and edged ahead as Shane Long stroked home Jobi McAnuff's pass on 81 minutes.

Blades goalkeeper Steve Simonsen had denied both McAnuff and Ivar Ingimarsson before the breakthrough.

But Andy Griffin's rash tackle on Bogdanovic allowed the striker to slot home from 12 yards and secure a draw.

Sheffield United are still two points away from safety in 22nd position in the Championship, while Reading's play-off hopes fade further with nine points now separating them from Leeds in sixth.

Reading started brightly and, after Ingimarsson's touch on Brian Howard's inswinging free-kick had tested Simonsen, the Blades goalkeeper had to be alert again to keep out McAnuff's back-post header.

McAnuff was a constant threat down the flanks and skipped clean through, only to be denied by Simonsen once more after the interval.

The home fans had little to cheer with Michael Doyle's wayward looping header a rare moment of excitement in the Reading box.

Their mood worsened when Long latched onto McAnuff's through-ball and slipped the ball under Simonsen with nine minutes of normal time remaining.

But the a late spell of pressure paid dividends for the hosts as Bogdanovic drew the foul from Griffin before picking himself up and converting the resulting spot-kick.
