  • That's it from me. I need to crack on with the match report, ratings and post-match quotes.

  • Stunning result. Chelsea were leading 2-0 with only four minutes of regular time remaining, but two goals in the closing stages have secured the unlikeliest of draws. Full time, it's Reading 2 Chelsea 2. A draw out of nothing for the Royals.

  • The full-time whistle goes and Reading have come from 2-0 down to stun Chelsea and secure a remarkable 2-2 draw.

  • Azpilicueta is now booked for diving.

  • From the free-kick Reading launched the ball in the penalty area. Kebe flicks on the ball. Akpan nods on the ball for Le Fondre, who guides the ball home. Stunning stuff.

  • GOAL! Reading are level! Le Fondre has scored!

  • Reading finishing with a flourish, but Turnbull comes out and collects the ball. He's in no rush to re-start the game either.

  • Change for Chelsea. Ba comes on. He replaces Torres.

  • Super save from Federici to deny Ramires from distance. Could be more goals in this one.

  • Five minutes of injury time are due to be played. Demba Ba looks like he is going to come on.

  • Neat through-ball from sub Akpan and he finds who else by Le Fondre, who tucks home a left-footed finish. Can Reading perform another late miracle?

  • GOAL! Reading have scored through Le Fondre.

  • Chance. Benayoun finds Oscar, but his first-time effort is blocked by Federici, who came out of his goal quickly to snuff out the danger.

  • Le Fondre curls an effort over. Reading coming back into this a little. They need a goal soon.

  • Chelsea have Terry on the bench should Cahill be unable to continue.

  • Cahill got a whack to the face there. Looks like he headed the back of McCleary's head.

  • 12 minutes to go and Reading have just had their first attempt at goal. Le Fondre headed an effort well wide. Disappointing night from the Royals so far.

  • Just to clarify Le Fondre came on after Lampard scored. He replaced McAnuff.

  • Change for Chelsea as well. My man of the match Mata has departed. Benayoun is on.

  • Third and final change for Reading. Karacan has gone off and he's replaced by Akpan, who was signed from Crawley Town.
