Michael Kightly scored Stoke's goal on his league debut for the club

Stoke drew with Premier League new boys Reading 1-1 at the Madejski Stadium after they gave away a penalty and were reduced to 10 men in the dying minutes.

Michael Kightly fired Tony Pulis' side into the lead from close range, with the ball slipping through goalkeeper Adam Federici's fingertips.

But the Royals salvaged a point when Adam Le Fondre equalised from the spot as Dean Whitehead was sent off for his second bookable offence.
