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.
