Tottenham Hotspur claimed their second point of the season with a draw against Reading at The Hive.

Reading were ahead on 12 minutes, Jess Fishlock sending Emma Mitchell down the wing and the cross headed home by Brooke Chaplen.

Spurs were level a further 12 minutes in, a corner headed on was nodded in by Ashleigh Neville.

Alex Morgan came on for the final 20 minutes for Tottenham but it was Royals’ substitute Lily Woodham who went closest to a winner, forcing Becky Spencer to parry her shot away.

Bristol City were told by The FA to play their fixture at Manchester City despite five first-teamers going into self-isolation following a case of COVID-19.

Manchester City took less than 10 minutes to score, Laura Coombs feeding the ball wide for Georgia Stanway, whose cross led to an own-goal by Sophie Baggaley.

Although Ebony Salmon quickly got Bristol back on level terms, the hosts scored three goals approaching half-time through Coombs, Keira Walsh and Lucie Bronze for a 4-1 interval lead.

Stanway got the fifth early in the second half, Ellen White adding the sixth before the hour mark.

Janine Beckie got in on the act in the last 10 minutes and White got her second for a final score 8-1.
