🎱 Royals draw Leicester City Women in FA Cup

Reading FC Women to face Foxes away for fifth round

27 January 2020

Kelly Chambers’ Royals have learnt their opponents for the next round of the Women’s FA Cup, as they draw Leicester City away with the match scheduled to take place on Sunday February 16th.

Reading FC Women were dominant on Sunday in fourth round, defeating London City Lionesses 5-0 at Princes Park. Fara Williams opened the scoring in the 13th minute, before Jo Potter doubled the Royals lead on the half-hour mark. Maz Pacheco netted her first ever Reading goal on the stroke of half-time after a shot from Williams hit the bar and settled nicely for the defender to slot home. Lisa-Marie Utland added her name to the scoresheet midway through the second-half and Williams completed her brace with a coolly converted spot-kick to round of an impressive victory.

Now, focus shifts to Leicester and the fifth-round. The Foxes were victorious away to Burnley, winning 3-1 at the weekend to progress to the final 16 of the Women’s FA Cup.

Reading FC Women are next in action this Sunday when Manchester United travel to Adams Park for a 2pm kick-off in a Barclays FA WSL clash that will have huge ramifications on the top 4. Tickets are available for Sunday’s match from just £6, here.
