Millwall Lionesses 3 (Cole pen 13, Ayane 20, Hincks 51) Watford 2 (Mason 37, Nuttall 61)
Millwall Lionesses held on to the last remaining unbeaten record in FA WSL 2 after edging out Watford by the odd goal in five.
Millwall, who have now drawn five and won two of their seven games in FA Women's Super League, went ahead after 13 minutes. Naomi Cole sent Shayla Burgess the wrong way from the penalty spot after a handball to put the Lionesses in front.
The hosts doubled their lead seven minutes later when Ashlee Hincks' free kick found Rosella Ayane, who rose highest to head home past Burgess.
With Millwall looking in the ascendency, Ellie Mason pulled one back for Watford with a 30-yard screamer eight minutes before half time for her second goal in as many matches to bring her side back into the game.
Millwall restored their two-goal cushion seven minutes after the restart through Hincks' curling free kick, which marked her first goal for the club since joining recently from Gillingham.
But Watford refused to lie down and they were back in the contest on the hour mark when Anneka Nuttall slotted home moments after coming on a substitute.
Nuttall, though, went from hero to villain shortly afterwards when she was sent off after a tangle with Cole and Millwall saw the game out to keep up their impressive run.
Millwall Lionesses: Sarah Quantrill, Jordon Butler, Dionne Lennon, Naomi Cole, Leanne Cowan, Grace Fisk (sub Lilli Maple 78mins), Danielle Carlton, Megan Goss, Lily Agg, Rosella Ayane. Subs not used: Clara Sherwood, Fran Ali, Rinsola Babajide, Frankie Gibbs, Lauren David.
