Sam Mewis’ third City goal in five games was not enough for all three points, as Gareth Taylor's side were held to a 1-1 draw at Reading.

The United States star struck a fine finish to salvage a point at the Madejski Stadium, cancelling out Amalie Eikeland’s quickfire opener.

The result marked two points dropped for the away side, who had chances to snatch victory but struggled to breach a stoic Royals defence.


Reading opened the scoring early on, as Eikeland flicked home a corner at the near post, after Ellie Roebuck had done brilliantly to deny Lauren Bruton’s initial effort.

Mewis levelled the score 11 minutes after the restart, arrowing a sweetly-struck effort past Grace Moloney, but try as we might, the City could not find a winner...
