Crystal Palace v Reading 20.01.06

Reading's unbeaten league run continued at Selhurst Park, as Reading earned a point in a 1-1 draw with Crystal Palace.

After a goaless first half, Crystal Palace opened the scoring on 79 minutes, when England's Andy Johnson convert the penalty he had won, after being tripped by Marcus Hahnemann.

Within seconds of the restart, James Harper found the net after being set up by Leroy Lita's pass, to drive a powerful shot pass Kiraly. The game ended 1-1 but only thanks to Marcus Hahnemann's dramatic double save to deny Johnson, then Soares to earn the away point.

By the end of game, Reading's lead at the top of the 2005/6 Championship had been extended to 10 points, with Sheffield Utd having played one game less. The gap to third place, however, was an impressive 22 points.
