Demba Ba, right, scores his and Newcastle's second goal against Reading

Demba Ba stole a controversial point for Newcastle in a 2-2 draw against luckless Reading with an equaliser just six minutes from time that went in off his hand.

Reading seemed on course for their first Barclays Premier League win of the season after goals from Jimmy Kebe and Noel Hunt in the space of four second-half minutes.

Ba had equalised in between the two Reading strikes with a magnificent volley. The Senegal striker then went to meet Shane Ferguson's cross with his head but missed it and the ball deflected off his hand past the helpless Reading goalkeeper Alex McCarthy.
