Watford 1-1 Reading: Report
Noel Hunt continued his fine run of form but Reading were held to a third consecutive npower Championship draw as their clash with Watford finished 1-1 at Vicarage Road.
Hunt had gone 15 months without a goal after serious foot and knee injuries but made it three goals in three games early on to put the Royals ahead.
Shane Long broke the offside trap to race clear down the left and had the presence of mind to pick out his Republic of Ireland compatriot in the middle for a low finish.
But Malky Mackay`s side battled back to level before the interval when Troy Deeney was left free to head home and leave Brian McDermott`s men again frustrated.
Reading are only two points off the play-off places but need to turn draws into wins if they are to challenge for a place in the Barclays Premier League.
