With the upcoming away clash against Birmingham City Women in the FA WSL this weekend, Reading Women will be looking to ride the momentum from their recent dominant 4-0 win in the Continental Cup against Tottenham Hotspur Women.

One of Sunday’s goalscorers, striker Millie Farrow, knows the side need to keep the pressure on and deliver with the victory against Spurs in the rear-view mirror. “After the weekend we really need to push on now in terms of performance,” Farrow said. “4-0 against Tottenham was great and we showed a lot of glimpses of how much we can hurt teams, but now all focus turns to Birmingham this weekend.”
Kelly Chambers’ side outplayed Tottenham last Sunday with an irrefutable team performance that could have seen them score at least double, with constant threats to the Spurs goal. But Farrow is keen that the Royals keep up the form that saw them play Tottenham off the park and take 3 points in the opening weekend of the season away to Liverpool.
“It is important that we maintain the aggression we showed in our last match,” Farrow continued. “We need to stay in good habits so we can progress as the season moves on. Our focus at the moment is for 3 points this weekend with a clinical performance.”
Reading travel to Solihull Moors FC to take on Birmingham FC Women on Sunday, with a kick-off time of 2pm. The Blues are coming off a pair of 1-0 losses in their first two games of the Women’s Super League, to Everton and West Ham respectively. Reading Women currently sit mid-table after the away win against Liverpool in the opening week of the season and a loss to 2018-19’s runners-up Manchester City prior to the impressive victory over Tottenham.
