IN TONIGHT'S GREEN 'UN…
Ipswich Town 1 Reading 1
Ipswich got out of jail right at the death of their First Division opener at Portman Road this afternoon against Reading. The game went into time added on for stoppage with the Blues trailing the visitors from Berkshire following a Steven Sidwell goal in the 59th minute but with time so short Tommy Miller fired home from the penalty spot after Graham Murty had tripped Jim Magilton. Not long before Reading had defender Nicky Shorey sent off for a professional foul on Pablo Counago.
The decision by the referee incensed Alan Pardew that he raced onto the field at the end to remonstrate with referee Brain Curson.

Ipswich never really got going but there worked hard however, you have to feel sympathy for Reading as they looked set for victory on a sweltering after at Portman Road.
Town will have to do much better than this if they are to do well this season but no doubt manager Joe Royle will have seen things in this game that will have taught him much.
