Striker scores in stoppage time as Reading come from behind to draw 1-1 with Southampton

Ben House scored a last-minute equaliser to earn Reading a 1-1 draw at home to 10-man Southampton in Division 2.

The visitors took the lead after 77 minutes at Hogwood, when substitute Jonathan Afolabi was fouled and Sam McQueen converted the penalty.

Just two minutes later, Armani Little was sent off after receiving a second yellow card for a foul on Josh Barrett. 

Reading piled on the pressure and in the 90th minute were rewarded when House collected the ball and fired low into the bottom corner.

That result means Reading are third, three points behind leaders Middlesbrough, while Southampton are up to eighth on 14 points.
