Late Equaliser Earns Derby Dramatic Draw At Reading

Posted by

Derby County came back from two goals behind with five minutes left to secure a point at Reading thanks to Curtis Davies’ 91st-minute equalizer.

Reading had taken the lead thanks to a spectacular goal from Junior Hoilett, who then doubled the Royals’ lead early in the second half.

Derby, on the other hand, increased the pressure in the final half-hour, and replacement Colin Kazim-Richards pulled one back late on to set up a tense finish.

The bottom-of-the-table Rams’ unbeaten run was extended to four games when centre-back Davies headed home in the opening minute of stoppage time to square the scores.

With the draw, they are now 11 points behind Reading, who are narrowly above the relegation zone in 21st position.
