FT: Reading 0 Swansea 0

94
That's it! It's all over at the Madejski Stadium. Reading earn a point at home against mid table Swansea. Swansea will hope Michu's injury isn't too serious.

94
It's another weak one. Cleared.

94
One last Reading chance. Free-kick given. Can they do it?

92
Slight stoppage. Williams looks hurt after he came up from the back for a Swansea free-kick.

4 minutes of injury time being played

88
Michu spotted in the stands. He's smiling though Swansea supporters. Maybe his injury isn't that bad.

87
Another great Reading corner but Vorm is equal to it and punches clear

85
Chance for Reading! Le Fondre with a superb volley on the edge of the box, but Chico is back to head away.

81
Swansea looking the more likely at the moment as we enter the final 10 minutes.

81
Look away now Swansea fans. Michu is being carried off and replaced by Shechter

Could this game end all square? SkyBet have it down as 4/7 to be a draw. Why not have a look: http://www.skybet.co.uk/football/football-live/event/14723555

77
Reading's best chances coming from set pieces. Surely they will get one right

77
Who will come out on top in this one? More even this half. Swansea's passing game or Reading's direct style?

76
Correction: Great free-kick by Harte and Le Fondre guides the ball into the Swansea net.......with his hand. No goal

Great free-kick by Harte and Le Fondre guides the ball into the Swansea net.......with his hand. No goal.

Britton has also made way for Agustien

70
Moore off DeGuzman on for Swansea

68
Dyer with a diving header but a superb save by Federici. Still all square.

62
Double sub for Reading. Le Fondre on for McAnuff, Hal Robson-Kanu on for Pogrebnyak.

57
Yellow card Pogrebnyak for a late challenge on Tiendalli. Very late indeed.

56
McAnuff receives the ball just inside the area and his shot is deflected wide. Corner.

55
First yellow card of the game for Tiendalli. His second late challenge of the afternoon

52
Kebe finds space down the right but he misjudges his cross and it's far too deep for the Reading forwards

45
Second period has started just like the first. Swansea with plenty of the ball. Ki the latest Swansea player to see his shot fly wide.

45
Second-half up and running. Doesn't appear to any changes.

Or, will Reading record a rare home win. SkyBet have some great in play options. If you fancy a flutter have a look: https://www.skybet.com/football/football-live/event/14723555

If you think that Swansea will win and finish off one of their chances after the break., why not have a look at SkyBet. They have Swansea at 7/2 to win 1-0. Take a look: https://www.skybet.com/football/football-live/event/14723555

The referee blows for half-time. Swansea will feel they should be leading. The Reading fans will want more from their side after the break.

45
The ball falls to Dyer 25 yards out and he fires high and wide. Nearly half-time.

41
Not a lot going on at the moment. Swansea having plenty of the ball but the chances appear to have dried up for now.

34
Chance for Reading! Kebe with time out wide and his cross is missed on the six yard box by the falling McAnuff and Tiendalli. Reading players appeal for a penalty but the referee waves away the protests.

33
Jimmy Kebe is by far Reading's most lively player. Sky Bet have him down at 10/1 to score next. Why not take a look https://www.skybet.com/football/football-live/event/14723555

30
Chance for Swansea! Terrible mix up in the Reading defence and when the ball fell to Michu Swansea fans must have thought he was about to put their side one up. He didn't and stretched to poke the ball over the bar.

29
Kebe breaks and when the ball falls to Pogrebnyak in space his touch lets him down.

27
Two interesting styles. Swansea quite happy to pass the ball out from the back. Reading looking for Pogrebnyak whenever they get it.

26
Harte with another free-kick for Reading who aims again for Pearce but it's easy for Vorm. Far better from the home side though

25
Guthrie's free-kick aims for Pearce but he's flagged offside. Waste.

24
The home crowd really trying to motivate Reading. It could work. Williams fouls Pogrebnyak. Free-kick Reading

21
Swansea passing the ball for fun at the moment. Reading can't get near them.

17
Rare opportunity for Reading in the Swansea half. Harte's free-kick makes it's way to the back post but when the ball breaks to Kebe he slices wide.

16
Davies starting to get the better of Gunter down the left and then Michu is unlucky as his touch takes it out for a Reading goal kick

13
Michu causing mayhem in the Reading defence. He finishes past Federici but was adjudged to have fouled Mariappa in the build up. No goal.

12
Two corners in quick succession for Swansea. Michu being very tightly marked and Reading have eventually cleared but they don't look comfortable at set pieces.

11
Swansea still having plenty of the ball. Reading can't string two passes together at the moment. Brian McDermott will not be happy with the start his side have made.

8
Ki blazes his free-kick over the bar from 30 yards after Leigertwood fouled Britton.

7
Swansea the better side thus far. Reading struggling to get out of their half.

6
Chance for Swansea. Michu receives the ball on the edge of the box a toe pokes the ball just over Federici's bar. Close.

3
Guthrie breaks into the Swansea box and goes down but no foul. Swansea are on the attack straight away

2
Swansea as you would expect appear to have settled the better. Very crowded centre of the park.

1
Michu and Routledge get us off and running

Swansea to kick off. Reading have just completed their pre match huddle....
