Millwall Lionesses 1 (Babajide 65) Bristol City 2 (Emslie 11,66)
Bristol City regained the leadership of WSL 2 when a goal in each half from Claire Emslie gave them an important win at Millwall Lionesses.
The visitors started brightly and could have taken the lead early when Olivia Fergusson struck the bar with a deft volley when she connected to Emslie's cross.
The Vixens took the lead in the 11th minute when Emslie stroked the ball home from five yards after a neat cut back by Chloe Arthur.
After the break it was a similar story and Flo Allen was unfortunate not to double the lead when her audacious dipping shot from 35 yards rattled the bar in the 54th minute.
The Lionesses grew in confidence and drew level in the 65th minute when the ball fell invitingly for Rinsola Babajide, just on as a substitute, who slotted into an empty net from six yards.
Emslie put the visitors back in the lead a minute later though, when her speculative curling effort from 25 yards nestled into the bottom left hand corner of Grace Taylor's net.
Millwall Lionesses: Grace Taylor, Leighanne Robe, Grace Fisk, Billie Brooks, Leanne Cowan, Lilli Maple, Amber Gaylor, Bonnie Horwood, Megan Wynne (sub Georgina Giddings 79mins), Ashlee Hincks (sub Rinsola Babajide 61mins), Lucy Loomes. Subs not used: Emily Heaslip, Jordon Butler, Charlotte Gurr.
Bristol City: Caitlin Leach, Megan Alexander, Grace McCatty, Chloe Arthur, Hayley Ladd, Olivia Fergusson (sub Emily Syme 80mins), Claire Emslie (sub Paige Sawyer 90mins), Flo Allen (sub Ellie Wilson 79mins), Jodie Brett, Charlie Estcourt, Georgia Evans. Subs not used: Hannah Reid, Katie Jones.
