Reading Make Comeback To Share Points

A stunning volley from Jeff Hendrick ten minutes from time earned Reading a deserved point against fifth placed Watford. The Royals trailed by two goals when Porteus headed home from a corner just after the interval, but manager Paul Ince made decisive substitutions and his revitalised side came back strongly. Tom Ince pulled a goal back from the spot after Shane Long burst in to the penalty area and was bundled over by Watford's Criag Cathcart before Hendrick's stunner completed the comeback. Had Meite managed to show a little more composure in front of goal in the final minutes Reading might have taken all three points. In the end I imagine most Reading fans, and manager Paul Ince, would have gone home delighted with the result.
