The first half started evenly with good chances for both sides, but as the game progressed Reading gradually exerted more pressure and finished the half looking stronger.

The second half developed into a more end to end game with both teams having a number of short corners. Reading scored midway through one of the these, but Chelmsford fought hard and had a number of goal scoring chances. The Chelmsford team finished really strongly and ended with some potentially match saving corners, unfortunately they proved to be close misses, leaving the supporters in tatters, and the game finished 0-1 to Reading.

The team worked really hard from start to finish and should be very proud of their performance given the harsh playing conditions and their small squad.

Good luck to Reading in the semi-finals.
