Reggae Girlz captain Bunny Shaw scored her seventh goal in six league matches this season as Manchester City ran out 3-0 winners against Reading in the Women’s Super League on Sunday.

Two own goals in the second half by Emma Munkandi in the 53rd and 60th minutes had City comfortably on their way to their fourth straight victory before Shaw buried a header in the 76th minute to seal all three points.

In the match played at the Select Car Leasing Stadium in Reading, Manchester City was wasteful in front of the goal. Shaw was guilty of a bad miss on the stroke of half-time when she headed a cross, miles over the Reading goal.

However, she made amends in the second half when she connected on a Mary Fowler cross to head past goalkeeper Jacqueline Burns.

In truth, City should have won by a more considerable margin, having taken control of the game from the opening whistle. The Citizens dominated possession with 77 per cent of the ball while unleashing 19 shots at goal, five of which were on target.

The win moves City up to fourth on 12 points, three behind Manchester United and six back of Chelsea, which has played a game more.

Arsenal leads the league with 18 points from six games this season following their 4-0 victory Leicester City.
