London Bees 4 (Goddard 37, Loomes 45, Fraser 53, Georgiou 90) Watford 0
London Bees secured their first win since July with a 4-0 victory over local rivals Watford - a result that effectively cements the visitors' position at the foot of WSL 2.
The Hornets need maximum points from their last three games to avoid finishing bottom after Ashleigh Goddard, Lucy Loomes, Gemma Fraser and Andria Georgiou goals secured the points at The Hive. It moves Julian Broomes' side level on points with Millwall Lionesses, although they carry a hugely inferior goal difference.
A quiet opening period saw limited chances, but Goddard opened the scoring by steering her seventh of the season into the bottom corner from a right wing cross.
The visitors' hopes of a point then faded on the stroke of half time following a superb run from Gemma Fraser, who teed up Loomes to smash the ball high into the net.
Sophie Harris kept the two-goal lead in tact with a fine double save from Stacie Donnelly, but less than two minutes later Fraser's low 20-yard drive sealed matters.
Ellie Mason missed a succession of late chances for Watford before Georgiou added a fourth from close range after the Hornets failed to clear.
