Royals Women gear up for season finale

Highest-ever WSL1 finish up for grabs on Sunday

19 May 2018

Reading FC Women could claim their highest ever finish in league football with a victory over Birmingham City on Sunday.

With the Royals sat in 4th and Birmingham just two points behind in 5th, the winner will seal a place in the top four of the WSL1 in the final game of the league campaign.

Kelly Chambers' side have been in excellent form all season, coming into this match off the back of three consecutive wins and clean sheets - most recently seeing off Liverpool 3-0 at Madejski Stadium.

The Royals also have the current WSL1 Player of the Month in their ranks, with Remi Allen taking April's award for her standout performances in the division.

Four Reading players have also reached a century of appearances for the club, with Becky Jane, Harriett Scott, Grace Moloney and Melissa Fletcher all receiving framed shirts at their last match to mark that milestone!

Birmingham are the opponents on Sunday afternoon for the Royals, with Blues staging a late comeback in the reverse fixture back in October to take a late point from Adams Park.

Brooke Chaplen and Jade Moore had put Reading ahead in the first half, before Birmingham fought back with a 94th minute equaliser from Emily Westwood making it honours even on the day.

A draw for Reading will seal a 4th place finish in the WSL, with Arsenal within reach in 3rd with a victory on the final day for the Royals - with defeat for Arsenal.

Kick-off is at 2pm on Sunday afternoon, and you can follow the game live by following @ReadingFCWomen on Twitter!
