    FT: Reading 2-2 Chelsea

    That's where I'll end today's live text.

    The match report will be on the BBC Sport website soon.

    Thanks for joining.


    Reading 2-2 Chelsea

    Phew, that was a lively second half!

    Chelsea drop WSL points for the first time this season, thanks to Magdalena Eriksson's stoppage-time own goal.

    Efforts from Eni Aluko and Karen Carney had seen Blues come from behind after Remi Allen's first-half strike - but a draw was probably a fair result.

  5. GOAL: Reading 2-2 Chelsea

    Magdalena Eriksson OG


    That is unbelievable.

    Reading loop in a free-kick - it doesn't look dangerous until Magdalena Eriksson heads it into her own net.

    Absolute disaster for Chelsea, delight for Reading who probably do deserve to take something from the game.

    There will be three minutes of added time.

  7. Post update

    Reading 1-2 Chelsea

    That was Reading's chance to level.

    Remi Allen collects the ball in the box, but her weak effort is saved.

    Chelsea are hanging on.


    Reading 1-2 Chelsea

    Brooke Chaplen sprints clear for Reading, but Chelsea goalkeeper Hedvig Lindahl rushes out and blocks Chaplen's shot.

    Brave goalkeeping.

  9. Post update

    Reading 1-2 Chelsea

    That's more convincing from Chelsea goalkeeper Hedvig Lindahl.

    The Swede palms away a hanging free-kick to safety.

    Is there another twist to come in the remaining seven or so minutes?

  10. Post update

    Reading 1-2 Chelsea

    Chelsea are pushing for a third.

    Karen Carney sends a free-kick inches wide.

    The England midfielder has been a maestro this afternoon.

  11. Post update

    Reading 1-2 Chelsea

    So close to an equaliser for Reading!

    Rachel Furness pokes the ball towards goal but Magdalena Eriksson is there to clear off the line.

    This has been an enthralling second half and a great advert for the WSL.

  12. GOAL: Reading 1-2 Chelsea

    Eniola Aluko

    What a strike from Eniola Aluko!

    The Chelsea substitute sweeps Fran Kirby's pass into the corner from 12 yards.

    No keeper in the world would have saved that - Chelsea have come from behind to lead.

  13. CLOSE!

    Reading 1-1 Chelsea

    Reading fluff a great chance to retake the lead!

    Chelsea goalkeeper Hedvig Lindahl punches the ball straight into the air, it drops to Lauren Bruton, but she scuffs her shot wide.

    I'm not sure this is going to end one apiece.

  14. Post update

    Reading 1-1 Chelsea

    Yet more excellent defending by the hosts.

    Chelsea's Gemma Davison forces her way into the box, cuts the ball back, but Kirsty Pearce throws her body in the way.

    Pearce has been doing that for 70 minutes.

  15. Watch: Carney free-kick brings Chelsea level

    Reading 1-1 Chelsea

    If you missed the free-kick, now is your chance to give it a watch.


    Reading 1-1 Chelsea

    Drew Spence is withdrawn and Chelsea forward Eniola Aluko comes on.

    Can she make the difference?

  17. Post update

    Reading 1-1 Chelsea

    What marvellous defending by Reading's Harriet Scott.

    Fran Kirby weaves her way into the area, fires the ball across goal, but Scott clears with Drew Spence ready to pounce.

    Reading 1-1 Chelsea

    It's end to end stuff now.

    A great watch.

    30 minutes left for someone to make themselves a hero.

  19. Reading hit the post!

    Reading 1-1 Chelsea

    Wow, how close is that?!

    Reading win a free-kick 25 yards out, Fara Williams runs up and crashes it against the post.

    It was a thunderous effort from the England midfielder.

  20. GOAL: Reading 1-1 Chelsea

    Karen Carney

    That's a stunning free-kick by Karen Carney.

    The England midfielder goes down on the edge of the Reading box, steps up and bends a superb effort over the wall and into the corner.

    All square.
