Millwall Lionesses 0 Durham Women 0
It ended goalless at the Den - Durham's first draw of the FA WSL 2 season - despite a second half in which both sides created chances to win it.
In a quiet opening half, Durham started the stronger of the two young sides. Jemma Purfield got the first shot away with a stinging effort that Millwall keeper Sarah Quantrill saved after a deflection. Durham continued their early domination and on 18 minutes Beth Hepple came close to breaking the deadlock, firing a dangerous long range effort which grazed the top of the crossbar.
Millwall needed to get to grips with the game and didn't want to go behind and were unfortunate not to go in front 20 minutes later when Chelsea loanee Rosella Ayane latched onto a wonderful pass from Naomi Cole, in her new role in the centre of the midfield, but Ayane narrowly missed the Durham goal from a tight angle and an onrushing Alderson.
Millwall started the second half brightly coming straight out of the blocks, having attack after attack with no reward. The best falling to midfielder Ciara Sherwood who shot just wide from a half volley outside the box before stinging the goalkeeper's gloves again six minutes later.
Both sides had chances inside the final fifteen minutes but the contest ended goalless - Millwall's fourth draw in five WSL 2 games.
