Reading produced another sensational late comeback as they held Chelsea to a 2-2 draw at the Madejski Stadium on Wednesday night.
Juan Mata and Frank Lampard had taken the Blues to a 2-0 lead but substitute Adam Le Fondre pulled a goal back in the 87th minute before snatching a point five minutes into stoppage time.
Chelsea were looking for a response after their embarrassing draw with Brentford on Sunday but they struggled to find their feet throughout the game.
Jimmy Kebe managed to chip the ball over Ross Turnbull early on but nobody was on hand to finish the chance off while the Blues saw a penalty shout turned down after Mikele Leigertwood seemed to have handled the ball.
Gary Cahill sent a free header sailing wide soon after before Ryan Bertrand also failed to hit the target.
The Blues would grab the lead late in the half though as Fernando Torres slipped a superb pass through to Mata who drilled his finish home.
Chelsea improved after the break and saw Oscar go close with an acrobatic effort before Lampard finally gave them some breathing space when he lost his marker to nod in a Mata corner.
Le Fondre, who had helped Reading to a late 2-1 win over Newcastle United recently, was thrown into the mix and again he did not disappoint.
The former Rotherham striker first tucked away a chance at the far post before meeting another Akpan cross deep into stoppage time to calmly snatch a draw.
