READING, England (AP) -Reading rose off the bottom of the English Premier League by coming from 2-0 down to beat West Bromwich Albion 3-2 with barely any time to spare on Saturday.

Reading was booed off at halftime as West Brom cruised to a 2-0 lead with goals by Romelu Lukaku in the 19th and 69th minutes.

Not until Jimmy Kebe's header goal at the back post with 10 minutes to go did Reading even appear to threaten, but suddenly the home side became inspired.

Kebe was then fouled by Jonas Olsson and substitute Adam Le Fondre tucked the penalty away to equalize with two minutes to go.

Two minutes after that Reading won when Ian Harte's free kick was knocked down by Alex Pearce and Pavel Pogrebnyak bundled it in to send the stadium into rapture.
