Draw leaves QPR and Reading for wins
Queens Park Rangers and Reading were left both still looking for their first Premier League wins of the season after playing out a 1-1 draw in an early-season relegation scrap at Loftus Road.
Former QPR defender Kaspars Gorkss put Reading ahead after 16 minutes when he scored after the ball rebounded back from the bar before Djibril Cisse equalised with a welltaken goal, controlling and firing home from close range after 66 minutes. Adel Taarabt had a golden opportunity to win it for QPR in the closing stages but Reading keeper Alex McCarthy made a superb block to steer the ball past the post. It was his second important save after a brilliant effort stopped a Esteban Granero freekick in the first half. Southampton, who have a worse goal difference than QPR, also have four points but have slipped to bottom.
