Nick Blackman's second-half penalty earned Reading a point against Bolton in an entertaining contest between two of the promotion favourites in the Championship.

Darren Pratley's first-half header put Wanderers into a half-time lead at the Reebok Stadium.

But David Wheater's handball in the early stages of the second half saw Blackman level from the spot, ensuring both sides maintain their unbeaten starts to the season.
