  • And that's it!! What a turn around!! Adam Le Fondre's second-half double cancels out a Steven Naismith opener. Stay with us for the report, reaction and player ratings. Thanks for all your comments!

  • Morrison completes a last ditch tackle to stop an advancing Fellaini. Superb stuff.

  • The crowd is doing a Mexican wave... of biting their nails in these dying moments. Whistles echoing around the stadium, can't be long now?!

  • McAnuff does well to challenge Baines and win his side a much-needed goalkick. Never say die attitude is being rewarded so far. Fair credit to the Royals.

  • Stoppage time, Vellios connects with Baines' corner but his header is tame and wayward.

  • Everton haven't really troubled the hosts this half, barring that Fellaini header which hit the post.

  • Nervy moments for Reading who are just minutes away from their first maximum haul.

  • It's getting very sloppy now as Noel Hunt goes into the book, seems like it's more for dissent - or his dodgy Movember 'tasche maybe?!

  • Gunter clears a Baines delivery. Reading are all pretty much all behind the ball at the moment except Roberts. True grit and luck has got them to this position. Priceless three points at stake

  • Pienaar rides his luck and his loose pass comes back to him as he sets Fellaini off on a run and Oviedo gets his first real touches on the ball down the left.

  • Roberts has put in a shift today. He's tiring now and strays offside following a decent position. Can't fault his effort though, workhorse!

  • It's all to play for now - the next goal is extremely crucial. Who will it go to? Remember to tweet @HayleyP_11

  • Roberts is whiskers away from making it 3-1 with a glancing header but it flies wide.

  • Reading's Madejski Stadium has woken up now! They're loving this!

  • Vellios comes on for Hitzlsperger. What a turn around, a score you would have never envisaged following the first half, Moyes must be going mad!

  • Noel Hunt comes on for two goal hero Adam Le Fondre.

  • Off the post!!! Fellaini heads down a corner and it cannons back off the post, Reading have rode their luck so many times today!

  • Oviedo comes on in place of Naismith for Everton in response to that hammer blow.

  • GOAL LE FONDRE!!! Adam Le Fondre keeps a cool head and drills the ball down the middle as Howard dives to his left. Great composure! 2-1 Reading!!

  • Le Fondre goes down under a Coleman push as he tries to control the ball in the air and it's a pen!
