Match Preview

Brown back for North End Preston manager Darren Ferguson looks set to be boosted by the return of defender Wayne Brown for the match with Reading at Deepdale. Brown missed the stunning 6-4 win at Leeds in midweek but if he comes through training he will be involved, although Ferguson may decide to stick with Sean St Ledger and Craig Morgan in central defence from the start. Striker Josh King could make his return from a three-week absence due to an ankle injury and if he proves his fitness he is likely to be on the bench. However, fellow on-loan Manchester United player Matt James is still sidelined with an ankle problem. Ferguson has said Adam Barton needs a rest but with the international break coming up and the player pulling out of the Northern Ireland squad, he should play against the Royals. North End have bounced back from five consecutive defeats to record back-to-back away victories and will hope to continue this run with what would be only their second home win of the season. Reading boss Brian McDermott will be without captain Matt Mills for the trip. Mills was dismissed during the 1-0 win over Ipswich in midweek for two bookable offences and will serve a one-match ban at Deepdale. However, McDermott has a ready-made replacement available as Georgian international defender Zurab Khizanishvili will be back in his squad. The on-loan Blackburn man missed the Ipswich win thanks to a one-match suspension but he is back, though midfielder Brian Howard completes a three-game ban of his own. Icelandic midfielder Brynjar Gunnarsson will again miss out through a hamstring injury and winger Hal Robson-Kanu is doubtful after limping out late on in midweek. His replacement Simon Church scored the only goal with his first touch and comes into contention for a start, but Jay Tabb (ankle), Andy Griffin and Julian Kelly (both hamstring) are all out.

Match Report

Karacan stunner earns Royals a point Jem Karacan's brilliant strike gave Reading a deserved npower Championship point at Preston as Brian McDermott's side continued their decent start to the season with a 1-1 draw. Republic of Ireland winger Keith Treacy gave Preston an early lead but Darren Ferguson's men were second best throughout and had Darel Russell dismissed late on. Karacan, who had previously only managed one league goal for the Royals in over 50 appearances, crashed in a long-range leveller after the break. North End made just one change from the remarkable 6-4 win at Leeds in midweek which meant striker Jon Parkin was handed the chance to continue after his hat-trick at Elland Road. Defender Wayne Brown started in place of Craig Morgan, who found himself on the bench. Reading were without suspended captain Matt Mills and his presence was obvious in the opening stages as Preston full-back Billy Jones was allowed a free header from just five yards but he put it wide. The Royals then launched a rapid break and, after Shane Long carried the ball forward, he played it to Jobi McAnuff on the left who cut inside before smashing a looping shot against the crossbar. Both sides were attacking in numbers but it was the home side who forged ahead in the 23rd minute. Iain Hume chased a lost cause down the right before picking out Treacy perfectly to convert at the near post. Reading almost drew level at the end of the first half when Zurab Khizanishvili headed on an inswinging Ian Harte corner but Andy Lonergan recovered to make a fine save. The Royals were unfortunate to be behind at the break and their pressure paid off when Karacan drew them level in the 55th minute. Another Harte delivery did the damage and, when his corner was half cleared, Karacan was on hand to power home an unstoppable half-volley from 25 yards. McAnuff was then denied by Lonergan as the visitors looked for a winner before Russell was sent off for Preston. The former Norwich midfielder had been booked in the first period and, when he tripped Jimmy Kebe, he could have little complaint after being shown a second yellow card. Hume came closest to finding a winner but his shot in stoppage time was comfortably held by Reading goalkeeper Adam Federici.
