WSL 2: Emma Follis brace proves Reading depth - Kelly Chambers

Reading Women boss Kelly Chambers says Emma Follis' brace in Thursday's 3-0 win over Watford proves they are not reliant on Fran Kirby.

England forward Kirby took her season tally to an astonishing 10 goals in three games with the opener.

Follis added a second-half double before Lauren Bruton missed a penalty as the Women's Super League Two leaders maintained their perfect record.

"This is not a one-woman team," Chambers said.

"People are going to talk about Fran because she is one of the best players in the country, she's scoring goals and everyone talks about goalscorers.

"She is an important part of our squad but so is everyone else.

"We have a big squad and everyone is an important part of that as well as Fran, but it was nice to see some different names on the scoresheet."

Despite bottom-side Watford suffering their third loss in as many games, boss John Salmon remains positive.

"I thought we frustrated Reading for long periods - we were obviously disappointed it was 3-0 as it was maybe a bit harsh on our young players because they worked their socks off," he said.

"They kept their tactical discipline and executed the game plan well so I'm really pleased with the performance."
