Reading hold Fulham 3-3 in six-goal thriller

 
 

READING, United Kingdom (AFP) - Fulham climbed to sixth place in the Premier League table despite conceding a last-minute equaliser in a pulsating 3-3 draw at Reading on Saturday.

Reading, who were seeking their first win since promotion from the Championship last season, went ahead first but trailed 2-1 and then 3-2 before Hal Robson-Kanu pounced at the death to give the hosts a share of the points.

The promoted side remain in the bottom three, although the point was enough for them to leapfrog Southampton on goal difference.

Pavel Pogrebnyak was playing against Fulham for the first time since leaving the club in the summer and he spurned a great chance to break the deadlock in the fifth minute when he headed Nicky Shorey's cross wide from close range.
