Dionne injury mars Millwall win
 Women's Football News 6 Jul 2014
 
Watford 1 (Wynne 62) Millwall Lionesses 2 (Stenning 65, Lamb 80)
Substitute Stevie Lamb struck a late winner as Millwall Lionesses claimed their first victory of this season's FA WSL Continental Cup campaign, after coming from behind to win 2-1 at Watford. 
 
Previous results meant that neither side can qualify for the semi final stages of the tournament but the win does lift the Lionesses off the bottom of Group One. Lamb's goal, stuck with just seven minutes of the game remaining, will also give manager Kurti and the team confidence when the sides meet again at The Den, in FA WSL action, later in the season.
 
After a quiet opening, Millwall's Lillie Billson came close to breaking the deadlock when her rising shot from the edge of the area bounced off the top of the bar. Within two minutes, the Lionesses had been denied by the woodwork again as left back Meghan McKeag's shot struck the bar with Watford goalkeeper Shayla Burgess beaten.
 
With the game becoming more open, the challenges started to get heavier and in the 58th minute, captain Dionne Lennon was taken out by a rash tackle in the Lionesses half. Deja vu struck for Millwall, who having lost striker Emma Whitter to injury on the same ground earlier in the season, saw Lennon stretchered off with a suspected broken leg.
 
With the visitors' skipper off the pitch, Watford took advantage and broke through just five minutes later as Megan Wynne turned the ball in from close range after Jo Wilson had flicked on Emma Beckett's long throw.
 
Millwall needed to get back into the game and were behind for only six minutes as striker Kim Stenning levelled matters halfway through the second half with a first time effort that Burgess couldn't keep out.
 
With the game swinging back into the visitors' favour, Millwall applied the pressure to Watford's back line and the Lionesses claimed all three points when a superb crossfield pass by McKeag picked out substitute Lamb, who took it down excellently before finishing with real composure. 
 
Watford: Shayla Burgess, Georgia Mays, Chloe Gunn, Renee Hector, Ellie Butterwick, Cally Rowell, Josie Green (sub Emily Heaslip 79mins), Kate Natkiel, Emma Beckett, Megan Wynne, Jo Wilson. Subs not used: Deger Zekai, Stacie Donnelly, Paige Logie, Ella Hill.
