Birmingham City Ladies 1-1 Reading Women

Ellen White
Ellen White has won 73 caps for England and scored 26 goals

Ellen White ensured that she ended the season as the WSL's top scorer, taking her tally to 14 as she helped Birmingham City draw with Reading.

Brooke Chaplen gave Reading an early lead as she powered home after being released by Remi Allen.

But White proved how deadly she was when she rounded goalkeeper Grace Moloney to roll the ball home after a long ball from Charlie Wellings.

Moloney made an excellent save to deny Lucy Quinn a second-half winner.

Reading end the season in fourth place, while Birmingham finish in fifth.
