'If It's Football, It's Vital'

Reserves earn credible draw with Arsenal

A strong Reading XI side drew with a similarly experienced Arsenal side in a behind-closed-doors friendly yesterday afternoon.

Development coach Chris Cummins was able to name a very experienced side with numerous first team names. Andy Griffin returned to play at left-back after suffering from a back problem is recent weeks, while Hayden Mullins earned some more crucial game time.

Defender Joseph Mills is still not ready to return to training after a persistent injury, which is Reading's only long-term injury concern. Striker Jason Roberts could even return for the weekend trip to West Ham after having positive results from his scan on his hamstring problem.

The Royals did not have the best of starts in this game as they fell behind in the opening minute of the game. However, January signing Tomasz Cywka equalised for Reading in what was described a 'slick passing move' with a composed finish from the Polish midfielder.

Reading: (4-4-2) Andersen, Arnold, Keown, Gunnarsson, Griffin, Cywka, Mullins, Tabb, Robson-Kanu, Church, Le Fondre

ubs: Henly, Goddard, Gage, Cooper, Raymond
