Preview: Reading v United WomenSkip to Main NavigationSkip to contentThursday 19 January 2023 13:12Manchester United Women are back in Women’s Super League action this weekend, when we take on Reading on Sunday (22 January). Marc Skinner’s side registered a comprehensive victory over Merseyside rivals Liverpool in our first game of the calendar year last Sunday (15 January), beating Matt Beard’s side 6-0 in front of a record home crowd at Leigh Sports Village. Results elsewhere – namely a 1-1 draw between Arsenal and Chelsea – meant that emphatic victory took us into second in the WSL table, having played one less fixture than Emma Hayes’ side above us. With a view of putting three more points on the board, United travel south to take on Reading.

Overall, the Red Devils and the Royals have met seven times in the WSL since our promotion in 2019. United side hold the upper hand, with five wins as opposed to Reading's one, with one clash ending in a draw. Last season, however, Skinner's side took maximum points off the Berkshire side. TEAM NEWS Marc Skinner is expecting to have all of his team available for Sunday’s WSL clash, pending a late fitness test for winger Leah Galton. The Reds midfielder picked up a knock prior to our winter training camp in Malta, but Skinner says she is making good progress. In his pre-match press conference, the United Women head coach said that should she not be available for Sunday, he is confident Galton will be able to make her return in our FA Cup game against Sunderland at the end of the month.
HEAD-TO-HEAD United and Reading have already faced one-another this season, with the Royals travelling to Leigh Sports Village for the league opener back in September. Skinner’s side wrapped the game up inside the first 45 minutes, scoring all four of our goals before half-time. Centre-back Maya Le Tissier, who arrived at the club in the summer, was the unlikely source of a brace that afternoon, as further goals from captain Katie Zelem and Alessia Russo ensured all three points for the Reds as we hit the ground running for the 2022/23 campaign.
Nonetheless, Erik ten Hag has put together a cohesive that expects success. Since their last FA Cup championship in 2016, Manchester United has made it to at least the quarterfinals in all but one season, that coming in their stunning fourth-round exit in 2021-22 at the hands of Middlesbrough. In their first match in this FA Cup matchup this season, ManU took down fell Premier League club Everton with a solid 3-1 win. Coming out of the Championship, the second tier of English football, Reading has made it to the fourth round for the first time since the 2019-20 campaign. They were able to win their first match of FA Cup action in the third round, when they beat Watford, a club trying to move back up since getting relegated from the EPL last season, 2-0 on Jan. 7.
A familiar face could line up against us at the weekend, with former Red Diane Caldwell now representing the Royals after a short stint with United last season. Kelly Chambers’ side remain without Canadian Deanna Rose, who is still sidelined following an ACL injury. FORM GUIDE After a memorable first half of the season, Skinner’s side started the year in ruthless fashion, dispatching rivals Liverpool 6-0.
