IPSWICH 1 READING 1
THIS battle between the Royals and the Royle's was certainly not a majestic occasion with a dire first half livened up when Lloyd Owusu put Reading ahead in the 62nd minute.
This led to Ipswich manager Joe Royle bringing on substitutes Martin Reuser and Dean Bowditch and Town were soon level when John McGreal scored his first goal of the season.
Kelvin Davies had to make two good saves before the end, but Ipswich looked much better in a second half that was more easier on the eye than the dreadful first period.
Ipswich therefore maintained their unbeaten run, extending it to nine matches on a day when nobody stood out to any extent although to gain a point at a team as highly placed, as Reading was an achievement.
Chris Bart-Williams held the side together and Bowditch look lively on his arrival, but there was little to suggest for much of the match that either team are good enough to reach the Premiership.
