Reading Women 2-1 Everton Ladies: Chaplen brace gives Reading third successive win

Reading Women striker Brooke Chaplen
Brooke Chaplen has scored seven goals in all competitions for Reading so far this season

Reading came from behind to pick up a third successive WSL victory and leave managerless Everton still searching for their first league win this season.

Hannah Cain had put the Toffess into an early lead as she slotted in Anessa Kaagman's cross but Brooke Chaplen's brace completed Reading's comeback.

Her first came from Remi Allen's assist within seven minutes of falling behind.

She then won it with a curling right-foot effort in the closing stages to ensure Reading stay fourth.
