Reading FC Women host Arsenal on Sunday, making it successive meetings with the Gunners… and they’ll be out for revenge!
It was Arsenal who snatched a late turnaround victory at Adams Park last time out in the semi-final of the Continental Cup; a heartbreaking end to an incredible cup run for the Royals Women.
Reading had a perfect record in the competition, which included a win away at Arsenal in the group stage… Fara Williams, formerly a Gunner, netted the winner from kick-off!
And in the knock-out fixture, the Royals had led until late in the game, until quickfire goals made it 3-2 to the London side – they’ll meet Man City to contest the title.
So now all of our energy can be concentrated on making a fist of it in WSL1, and three points this weekend would allow us to leapfrog Arsenal in the league standings.
It’s a 2pm kick-off this Sunday at Adams Park – tickets are available in advance for £6 adults, £3 concessions and £15 for families (2 adults and 2 concessions). For full ticketing information about Reading FC Women games, click here.
