Royals draw level with Cherries

Royals draw level with Cherries

Reading drew with League One side Bournemouth, as they played their first friendly since returning from Portugal last week.

The game finished 2-2 at the Goldsands Stadium, with the Premier League outfit taking the lead on two occasions. New signing Adrian Mariappa opened the scoring with a fine header, but the Cherries replied with a goal from Wes Thomas before half time. Robson-Kanu then won a penalty, converting calmy to give the Royals a deserved lead.

Once again Paul Groves' side responded, with Reading failing to clear a ball into the box which allowed Miles Addison to power a header home. The game also saw a return to action for Jem Karacan, who played the final 20 minutes of the game. Goalkeeper Adam Federici also completed the 90 minutes unfazed by a rib problem.

Reading: Federici, Cummings (Keown), Mariappa (Pearce), Morrison (Gorkss), Shorey (Harte), McCleary (HRK), Tabb (Karacan), Leigertwood (Guthrie), McAnuff (Obita), Hunt (Pogrebnyak), Church (Le Fondre)
