Reading FC Women boss Kelly Chambers says her squad is still strong despite England striker Fran Kirby's departure to Chelsea Ladies last Wednesday.
Reading beat Durham 3-0 on Saturday to stay top of Women's Super League Two.
"The decision to let Fran go and grant her wishes was made because I know the strength of the squad that I've got," Chambers told BBC Sport.
"They're all good players and I trust this squad to do a job out there for me," she added.

|Reading have kept four consecutive clean sheets in WSL 2|
|They have not conceded a league goal from open play since 23 April|
Kirby had been Reading's top goalscorer so far this season and was the top scorer in WSL 2 last year, with 24 league goals.
"They are additions that will strengthen this squad even more, and keep people on their toes," Chambers added.
"I know Nikki (Watts) is a goalscorer. She is a top-league goalscorer."
