Reading Women's ex-England midfielder Jo Potter is recovering after surgery to repair a fractured eye socket.

Potter posted on Twitter that she had gone through "a rough couple of weeks".

She added: "Glad to say I'm now on the mend with a nice titanium plate after surgery Wednesday and hope to have normal eyesight soon."

Potter will miss Reading's final Women's Super League game of the season at home to Chelsea on 11 May.
