Chelsea catch leaders
 Women's Football News 28 Jul 2014
Chelsea 2 (Ogimi 13, Aluko 53) Bristol Academy 1 (Watts 85)
Chelsea went level on points with WSL 1 leaders Birmingham City after a goal in each half gave them victory over Bristol Academy, who went down to their third straight defeat in matches played. 
Goals from Yuki Ogimi and Eniola Aluko were enough to give the Blues victory and for a host of missed opportunities, the scoreline could have been a lot more convincing.
After an open and entertaining opening period, Yuki Ogimi opened the scoring after 13 minutes, latching onto an Ana Borges cross.
Chelsea should have gone into half time with a comfortable cushion with Eniola Aluko, Ji So-Yun, Rachel Williams and Borges all unable to convert good chances.
Drew Spence was a powerhouse in the centre of the park, denying Bristol many attacking opportunities with a series of strong, well timed tackles.
Academy's best chances both fell to Natasha Harding who first whipped a fierce shot across the face of goal before being denied by Marie Hourihan's fingertips on the brink of half time.
The second goal for Chelsea finally arrived on 53 minutes when Mary Earps could not get enough behind a powerful cross-goal shot from Aluko.
Ji So-Yun was denied multiple opportunities to score, twice shooting wide from good positions and also being foiled by some fine goalkeeping from Earps.
Williams, Aluko and Spence all went close to extending the Blues' lead and with a couple of minutes left, it looked like they might rue the squandered chances when Nikki Watts pulled one back for Bristol after catching Hourihan off her line.
However, neither team could add to the score making it a fourth successive league win for Chelsea. 
Chelsea: Marie Hourihan, Anne Meiwald, Laura Bassett, Katie Chapman, Gilly Flaherty, Drew Spence (sub Laura Coombs 70mins), Yuki Ogimi (sub Jackie Groenen 78mins), Rachel Williams, Eniola Aluko, Ji So-Yun, Ana Borges (sub Danielle Buet 82mins). Subs not used: Cristiane Endler, Emma Wilhelmsson, Rosella Ayane, Jenna Dear.

Bristol Academy: Mary Earps, Grace McCatty (sub Rhian Cleverly 90mins), Corinne Yorston, Jaz Matthews, Frankie Brown (sub Gabriella Bird 67mins), Sophie Ingle, Loren Dykes, Angharad James, Natasha Harding, Nikki Watts, Georgia Evans (sub Natalia Pablos Sanchon 45mins). Subs not used: Alice Evans, Cristina Vega Leandro, Alex Windell.
