Full Time: Queens Park Rangers 1-1 Reading

QPR and Reading both remain without a win in the Premier League this season after cancelling each other out at Loftus Road as the game ended 1-1.

The visitors began the brighter and took the lead in the 16th minute, former QPR defender Kaspars Gorkss volleying in after Rangers were all at sea defending a corner.

The hosts were booed off at half-time but ramped up the pressure at the start of the second half and equalised in the 66th minute through Djibril Cisse.

And QPR would have won it but for a brilliant save from Alex McCarthy to deny Adel Taarabt, the second stunning stop of the afternoon from the Reading keeper.

The result did little to help either team, with Rangers remaining five points from safety – although they did climb off the bottom for 24 hours at least – and Reading only a point ahead.
