Royals share points with Seagulls
READING maintained their unbeaten home Championship record as they drew 0-0 with Brighton in a game of few chances on Sunday afternoon.
The main talking of the match was the fact both teams ended the first-half with just 10 men.
The Royals Russian striker Pavel Pogrebnyak in his first start of the season was the first to see red after picking up two yellow cards on 32 minutes.
The first was for tripping Kazenga LuaLua in full flight and his second was for diving as he threw himself to the ground.
The man advantage did not last long for the Seagulls, as six minutes later striker Leonardo Ulloa received a straight red card after a high challenge on Reading defender Alex Pearce.
Chances were few and far between in the game the closest anyone came in the first 45 minutes was when Brighton's Daniel Lopez delivered a cross for Gordon Greer and the defender headed goalwards, only for McCarthy to pull off a fine fingertip save.
After the break, Danny Williams headed over for the Royals before Brighton substitute Ashley Barnes saw his close-range half volley saved by goalkeeper Alex McCarthy.
