Doncaster Rovers Belles face their sternest test of the season against Reading this weekend but boss Glen Harris says it is the Royals who have the most to fear.

The top two in FAWSL2 meet at the Keepmoat Stadium on Saturday (6.30pm), with the Belles aiming to preserve their unbeaten record.

League leaders Doncaster, who despatched London Bees 5-1 last weekend, are currently three points better off than Reading.

“We’ve told the girls we’re only a third of the way through the season, but it’s nice to be there or thereabouts,” said Harris.

“This weekend’s probably going to be our toughest game of the season. Reading will want to close the gap on us and they’ll come here fighting.

“We know it’s going to be a tough task but it’s when we play the better teams that the girls seem to perform better.

“Reading are a good, young footballing side.

“But I think if we play like we did in the second half against London then all the teams in this league will fear us. We’re going into the game feeling confident.”
