Championship team Leicester City beat Women's Super League side Reading 2-1 in their FA Cup tie last night.

Paige Bailey-Gayle scored two phenomenal goals for City that saw her team through to the quarter-finals.

To add salt to the wound for Reading, they were leading up until the 79th minute thanks to a first-half penalty by Brooke Chaplen.

Former Gunner Bailey-Gayle scored to make it 1-1 and with no further goals the game was pushed into extra time.

Just as it seemed to be heading for penalties, 18-year-old Bailey-Gayle crashed one in off the crossbar to secure a famous win for the Foxes.

City will now face Manchester City in the quarter-finals on March 15.
