E-mail your reaction to Football Talk

Reading secured a draw with Peterborough which ensures they only need a point at Brentford next week to gain automatic promotion to the First Division.

In a see-saw encounter, a blunder by Reading goalkeeper Phil Whitehead gave Peterborough a fist-half lead as Matthew Gill's 30-yard shot slipped through his hands.

Second-half substitute Martin Butler sparked the side into life but it was Nicky Forster who scored twice in six second-half minutes.

But Peterborough equalised in the 83rd minute through Leon McKenzie.


Reading: Whitehead, Murty, Mackie, Viveash, Shorey, Hughes, Watson, Parkinson, Salako, Forster, Rougier. Subs: Talia, Williams, Butler, Cureton, Igoe.

Peterborough: Steele, Gill, Joseph, Edwards, Kimble, Danielsson, Bullard, Forsyth, Pearce, Fenn, McKenzie. Subs: Farrell, Oldfield, Andy Clarke, Connor, MacDonald.

Referee: D Crick (Worcester Park).
