Match Report: Yeovil Town Ladies 0-5 Reading FC Women

Goals from Fara Williams, Lauren Bruton and Millie Farrow saw Reading take the 3 points against The Lady Glovers after a 5-0 win.

Yeovil started the game very well, some great build-up play led to a fine strike from Emily Syme but was just wide.

A few minutes later Yeovil had another close chance. This time it was from Olivia Fergusson but Grace Moloney made a great save to make sure Yeovil didn’t take the lead.

After just 15 minutes Yeovil were forced to make their 1st substitution as Yeovil defender Hannah Short had a strain in her Achilles and couldn’t continue.

On 31 minutes Fara Williams managed to give Reading the lead from a strike outside the box.

Just before half time The Lady Glovers had to make another substitution after Gemma Davison’s two footed tackle, which received a yellow, injured Charlotte Buxton. The Reading striker was lucky not to receive a red.

Yeovil can put in the second half looking very strong. Olivia Fergusson has a very good chance not long after the restart as she managed to break through the Reading defence but she couldn’t find the back of the net.

On the 54th minute Lauren Bruton managed to double Reading’s lead with a great finish that Megan Walsh wasn’t able to stop.

Millie Farrow was next to get onto the score sheet firing it straight into the bottom corner on the 81st minute.

On the 83rd minute Bruton managed to get another goal for The Royals. This time it went straight past Walsh and into the bottom right corner.

Right before the end of the match Farrow managed to get another goal after breaking through Yeovil’s defence and firing home for Reading giving them a 5-0 win.

Yeovil’s focus will now go towards their game against Manchester City away at the Academy Stadium on the 28th of April.
