Donny and Millwall pull away
 Women's Football WSL2 News - 31 Jan 2018
It was a good day for the top two in WSL 2 as both recorded victories over their nearest rivals to open up a gap at the top of the table.
Doncaster Rovers Belles stay one point ahead as leaders following their 4-1 win over Brighton & Hove Albion. Jess Sigsworth gave them a first half lead from the penalty spot with Fern Whelan equalising just before half time. However, first half injuries ensured there was plenty of stoppage time and the Belles were back in front through Kirsty Hanson's neat finish. Hanson scored her second after the break with a 20-yard strike and Rebecca Rayner crowned the win with the final goal late on.
Millwall Lionesses kept up their pursuit in second place with a 3-2 victory over Durham Women. Leigh Nicol fired Millwall in front from long range, midway through the first half, and Billie Brooks headed in from an Ashlee Hincks free kick for the second, shortly after half time. The Wildcats pulled one back through leading scorer Beth Hepple but Hincks herself got on the scoresheet via a free kick to restore the two-goal advantage. Jordan Atkinson gave Durham late hope when she netted with a fine solo effort but Millwall held on for their seventh win in eight matches.
Oxford Utd rediscovered their winning form when they defeated Aston Villa 3-1, a result which keeps them in the top half of the table. Ebony Salmon gave Villa an early lead but the U's hit back with Taome Oliver equalising just after the half hour. Kayleigh Hines curled home a free kick, three minutes into the second half, to put Oxford ahead for the first time and Danielle Carlton sealed the points for her side with the third goal (see match report).
Sheffield FC replaced Tottenham Hotspur in sixth place after narrowly getting the better of them in a seven-goal thriller. Melissa Johnson gave the Yorkshire side a twelfth minute lead, with Tottenham hitting back quickly as Coral-Jade Haines drilled in the rebound after Sarah Wiltshire's penalty had initially been saved by Danielle Gibbons. Johnson then put Sheffield back in front and the striker completed her hat-trick in first half injury time. Bianca Baptiste reduced the arrears in the opening minute of the second half but Sheffield responded quickly with Katie Anderson netting their fourth, and although Wiltshire renewed Spurs' hopes on the hour, Sheffield managed to negotiate late pressure to hold on for three hard earned points.
London Bees continue to improve and lifted themselves up the table with a 3-1 win against Watford. Katie Wilkinson gave them the lead shortly before half time and Paula Howells added a second on the hour. Destiney Toussaint wrapped up an impressive win for the Bees with ten minutes remaining, before Anneka Nuttall netted a late consolation for Watford.
