Late penalty gives Reading 1-1 draw vs. Stoke

Striker Adam Le Fondre scored a late penalty to secure a 1-1

draw for promoted Reading against Stoke at the Madejski Stadium in

the Premier League on Saturday.

Stoke midfielder Dean Whitehead was sent off after he gave away

the spot kick when he brought down Noel Hunt.

Michael Kightly opened the scoring for the visitors in the 34th

minute when he slotted a Ryan Shawcross pass into the bottom right

corner of the goal.

The 26-year-old Kightly joined the Potters from relegated

Wolverhampton Wanderers in the offseason.
