There was only one match in the FA WSL over the weekend, with Reading and Tottenham playing out a 0-0 draw.

Westfield Matilda Alanna Kennedy, playing in a more advanced midfield role, had some of Spurs best chances of the game. A few long range efforts were easily collected by the Reading ‘keeper.


But the best chance saw Kennedy use her aerial prowess, forcing a reaction save out of Grace Moloney.

Much of the focus this weekend was on the Conti Cup final with Westfield Matilda Sam Kerr and her Chelsea team mates defeating Bristol City 6-0 to earn back to back league cups.
