Chelsea hit top spot
 Women's Football WSL1 News - 2 Jun 2017
 
Chelsea have gone top of the FA WSL 1 Spring Series table with one match left to play after winning 4-0 away to Bristol City.
 
Chelsea had to work hard for the opening goal against a spirited home side but it came nine minutes before half time when Millie Bright scored with a glancing header from a free kick. The introduction of Fran Kirby as a half time substitute was a telling factor and the England striker doubled their lead when finishing off a slick move. Kirby pounced on a back pass from Jodie Brett to score her second and provided a dummy to set up the final goal, which was finished off by Ramona Bachmann. Chelsea therefore kept up their record of averaging more than four goals a game and, because of a vastly superior goal difference, a win at Birmingham City on Saturday will see them win the Spring Series.
 
Manchester City's hopes meanwhile seemed to be waning but were given a late shot in the arm as they won 1-0 away to Sunderland. The visitors struggled to break down a stubborn and well organised Sunderland defence and went closest during the first half when Jane Ross had a shot cleared off the line by Victoria Williams. The home side looked to have done enough to earn themselves a point until the game went into injury time, when Georgia Stanway drilled home a 20-yard shot to get her side back on the winning track.
 
Arsenal remain firmly in the running, but will have to depend on other sides doing them a favour if they are to climb above both Chelsea and Manchester City. The Gunners played host to Reading FC Women and exerted early pressure, Beth Mead hitting the post after fifteen minutes and Royals goalkeeper Mary Earps pulling off a string of saves. The only goal of the game came five minutes before half time when Danielle Carter converted a low cross from Heather O'Reilly.
 
Yeovil Town meanwhile brought their seven-match losing run to an end when they held Birmingham City to a goalless draw. Coral Haines twice struck the bar for the Blues in the opening ten minutes but Yeovil were also to hit the woodwork when Nicola Cousins charged down a clearance shortly afterwards. Birmingham pressed during the second half, Rachel Williams going closest when she headed over a late cross, but Yeovil dug in to ensure they picked up their first point during the Spring Series in their final match.
