Angela's late strike keeps Spurs clear
 Women's Football FA Women's Championship News - 23 Feb 2019
 
FA Women's Championship News - Angela's late strike keeps Spurs clear - 23 Feb 2019 - Women's Football NewsA goal six minutes into injury time keeps Tottenham Hotspur five points clear at the top of the FA Women's Championship and their promotion challenge firmly on track.
 
Leicester started the game well before Spurs started to get on top, but were frustrated time and again by a string of excellent saves from City goalkeeper Demi Lambourne. However deep into injury time, Tottenham substitute Angela Addison evaded three challenges before planting a shot past Lambourne for the only goal of the game.
 
Manchester Utd meanwhile ran out 4-0 winners away to Sheffield Utd to ensure they kept pace with leaders Tottenham. Katie Zelem opened the scoring inside 30 seconds and after Lauren James had added the second, Ella Toone made it three from the penalty spot on the stroke of half time. Mollie Green completed a good night for her side with a close range header for the final goal, seven minutes into the second half.
 
Aston Villa continued their recent run as one of the division's form teams by beating Charlton Athletic 2-0, delivering a huge blow to the Addicks' promotion hopes in the process. The damage was inflicted during the first half, Sophie Haywood firing Villa in front just before the quarter hour and Kerri Welsh netted the second after being put through on goal by Amy West. The result stretches Villa's unbeaten run to five matches but for Charlton, the margin of defeat means they drop in the table below an inactive Durham Women.
 
Things are continuing to look up for Millwall Lionesses as they carried on from some good performances in the FA Cup by recording their first league win of the season, a 3-1 success against London Bees. The Bees were playing their first league game under new manager Rachel Yankey and were rewarded by taking the lead after eight minutes, Daisy McLachlan firing in her first goal for the club. Millwall got themselves back on level terms just before half time through a firm finish from Annie Rossiter. After the break, the Bees almost went back in front when Ellie Wilson hit the post with a header and McLachlan was denied a second goal by a good save from Rhiannon Stewart, but it was the Lionesses who went in front for the first time when Evie Clarke burst through to score against her former club. Eight minutes later, Clarke crowned her team's first league win in spectacular style with an overhead kick, to raise their hopes of climbing off the bottom of the table before the end of the season.
 
On Thursday night, Lewes gave Fran Alonso a first win as manager with a resounding 3-0 victory at Crystal Palace. The two teams had started the game level on points but the Rookettes never looked back after Sarah Kempson gave them an eighth minute lead from the penalty spot. Both sides exchanged changes with Lewes going closest when Leeta Rutherford's long range strike was tipped onto the bar by Lucy Gillett but they doubled their lead midway through the second half when Jess King fired home. Katie Rood had set up that goal and she scored the third herself with five minutes remaining, from the penalty spot after having been brought down in the area.
