🔜 Preview | Royals travel to Everton for Women’s Football Weekend

Saturday fixture on BBC Red Button for Reading FC Women

13 November 2020

Reading FC Women travel to Walton Hall Park for a rare 4.30pm kick-off on Saturday in the FA Barclays Super League as part of the annual Women’s Football Weekend.

This year’s event is the second Women’s Football Weekend and will be even bigger than its predecessor, as every Women’s Super League game is spaced across the entire weekend, ensuring fans can watch each one with no overlap whatsoever, including Reading’s trip to Everton.

Reading’s opponents Everton have enjoyed a strong start to their FA Barclays Women’s Super League campaign and, until last weekend, were undefeated in league competition, before being on the wrong end of a 4-0 score-line away to Chelsea. Previous to that, Everton had notched up wins against Bristol City, Tottenham, Aston Villa and West Ham, as well as a draw against Brighton.

Kelly Chambers’ Royals have two wins, two draws and two losses from their first six league games, that sees them sitting sixth in the table; two places behind Everton.

The last time we met

Reading and Everton crossed paths twice last season, each side taking full points from their home fixture. Everton visited Adams Park back in October of last year, where two first-half goals for Jade Moore were cancelled out moments later by strikes from Chloe Kelly and Lucy Graham, respectively, before substitute Lisa-Marie Utland scored the winner for the Royals moments after coming onto the field.

Reading were on the wrong side of a 3-1 score-line in the return fixture at The Pure Stadium in January of this year, when Chloe Kelly opened the scoring for the Blues before a penalty from Fara Williams got the Royals back in the game. But Kelly struck twice more in the second-half to complete her hat-trick and seal all 3 points for Everton.

📝 Report | Royals earn point away at Everton

Draw against in-form Toffees on Women’s Football Weekend

15 November 2020

Reading FC Women return from Everton with a point after a 1-1 draw in televised Women’s Football Weekend fixture.

In the same scenario as the week before against Tottenham, it was a story of two first half goals, as Claire Emslie’s opener was cancelled out two minutes later by an incredible effort from Natasha Harding, before the Royals battled for the winner that unfortunately didn’t come.

Both sides took it in turns to attack in the first fifteen minutes; Everton creating chances for Claire Emslie and Nicoline Sorensen, whose efforts were over the bar, and Reading doing their usual of forcing corner after corner.

The Royals took charge for a long spell following that, trying to get Captain Natasha Harding in on goal through the middle, while Brooke Chaplen and Danielle Carter pressed down the wings. Both Angharad James and Chaplen had shots from outside the area that were just wide of the mark.

However, Everton scored first when they broke on the 40th minute following what Emma Mitchell and the Reading bench felt was a foul on her. Sorensen got a shot in which was saved by Grace Moloney, who got to the ground quickly, but the ball bounced up nicely for Emslie, who nodded into the Reading net.

It took the Royals just two minutes to reply, when Jess Fishlock received the ball in her own half and spread the play beautifully to Harding on the right. The Skipper saw Alexandra MacIver off her line and lobbed the ball straight over her and into the back of the net for an incredible finish and surely an early contender for Goal of the Season.

Half-time: Everton Women 1-1 Reading FC Women

Reading’s corners proved difficult for Everton to deal with in the early stages of the second-half and the Royals had three in very quick succession. Other than a dangerous shot from Isobel Christiansen, Reading had the majority of the chances and were first to make a string of substitutions as they looked to freshen up the team and continue to press for another goal. Emma Mitchell made way for Lily Woodham at half-time, before Lauren Bruton and a returning Fara Williams replaced Chaplen and Carter, respectively.

Williams was straight into action as she floated a free-kick into the box, which Kristine Leine connected with, rising to reach the ball and nodding a header just over the bar.

Everton then took over for the final spell in their search for a winner, with Christiansen and Megan Finnegan with great chances, the latter blocked by Fishlock after the ball had seemingly passed Moloney.

In the third minute of additional time, the final moment of the match, Megan Finnigan’s close range header was quite incredibly kept out by Moloney. The referee blew the whistle a split-second later and the point was secure.
