Reading had a strong 2018/19 campaign as they established themselves as the best of the rest underneath the runaway top four.

One of the major challenges they face this season is ensuring Fara Williams, at 35-years-old, can provide them with as many goals as she did last season.

The England midfielder scored 12 league goals in 2018/19, with only Vivianne Miedema and Nikita Parris netting more times in the division.
