The Bristol City coach has been speaking about the challenge ahead of her side on Sunday.
She Said: “We know that Reading are going to be a tough opponent this weekend.
“They’re a big, physical team that will look to win first and second ball, as well as dominate the set-piece, so we know we have got to be switched on and put in a mature performance if we’re going to come away with a result against them.
“From our perspective large parts of our performances have been positive but there has just been one or two areas that we need to tidy up and that’s what has cost us.
“We’ve worked really hard on those areas during the break, so it’ll be interesting to see where we’re at with them and hopefully we can put in a good ninety minute performance - which is all we ever ask - and the result will be what it will be.”
