WSL: Reading Women 2-0 West Ham United Women

Jade Moore and Brooke Chaplen scored as Reading won against West Ham in a mid-table Women's Super League game at Adams Park.

Moore put Reading ahead in the 24th minute with a headed effort, finding the corner of the net.

A clever free-kick routine saw Amalie Eikeland nod the ball towards the midfielder who opened the scoring for the hosts.

The Royals came close to doubling their lead just a minute before half-time with Remi Allen's effort going agonisingly wide as the visitors were unable to respond in the first half.

Chaplen scored the second goal for Reading in the 63rd minute to wrap up the win.

An incredible run from the halfway line saw Chaplen hold off two defenders before slotting the ball coolly into the back of the net.

The win saw Reading move up to fourth in the table, while West Ham lie eighth.
