Reading 2-2 Derby County: Two late goals see Rams earn draw at Royals


Derby centre-half Davies scores in the 90th minute
Derby veteran Davies leaps high to head home the last-minute equaliser for the Rams

Curtis Davies’ 90th-minute equaliser saw Derby County fight back from two goals down with five minutes left to earn a point at fellow relegation strugglers Reading.

A wonder strike from Junior Hoilett had given Reading the lead, before the Canadian doubled the Royals’ advantage early in the second half.

But Derby heaped on the pressure during the final half-hour and substitute Colin Kazim-Richards pulled one back late on to set up a nervous finale.

In the final minute of normal time, centre-half Davies then headed home to level the scores and extend the unbeaten run of the bottom-of-the-table Rams to four matches.
