SWANSEA, Wales (AP) Swansea staged a second-half comeback Saturday to secure a 2-2 draw with Reading in the Premier League.

Miguel Michu in the 71st minute and Wayne Routledge in the 78th drew Swansea even after Reading secured a 2-0 halftime lead at the Liberty Stadium.

Reading, which has not won a league game since its return to the top flight this season, opened the scoring through Pavel Pogrebnyak, who struck from inside the area in the 31st. Noel Hunt doubled the advantage with another close-range effort in the 44th.

The point provisionally moved Reading clear of the relegation zone on goal difference while Swansea, without a league win in five matches, remains 11th.
