Reading FC Women boss Kelly Chambers hailed her side's discipline after they went top of Women's Super League Two with a 3-0 win over Millwall Lionesses.
Winger Emma Follis scored either side of a Harriet Scott strike to give the Royals a comfortable, deserved victory.
"It was a great performance from the girls again," Chambers told BBC Sport.
"We're asking more and more of them every week but they are learning more, they are more disciplined and I'm glad they have maintained that discipline."
The loss was Millwall's first in the league this season, bringing their seven-match unbeaten run to an end.
"Millwall were always going to be tough," Chambers added. "But we've worked on a lot of stuff over the last couple of months.
"Our girls are all coming together now as a group, they've all got to know each other from last season, and they're all bonding well and actually becoming a team.
"We have a lot of pace going forward, and different goal scorers."
Reading, who are ahead of second-placed Doncaster Rovers Belles on goal difference, travel to Durham for their last match before the international break on 31 May.
