Emma settles top table clash
 Women's Football FA Women's Championship News - 18 Jan 2020
 
The FA Women's Championship made its return to action on Sunday after a three week break, with a top of the table clash taking top billing.
 
It was Aston Villa who were 1-0 winners away to Sheffield Utd and this has taken them six points ahead of the Blades. Emma Follis, who had hit the bar during the first half, settled matters when she latched onto Shania Hayles' pass to score the only goal of the game, eleven minutes into the second half. For once, United's free scoring forward line was unable to respond, going closest when a cross-cum-shot by Sam Tierney struck the woodwork late on, leaving Villa in control of matters in the title race.
 
Durham Women kept up their challenge when they won 1-0 against Leicester City. The win was not quite enough to take the Wildcats back into the top two, leaving them just behind Sheffield Utd on goal difference. The only goal of the game came on 31 minutes, when Molly Sharpe took advantage of a defensive mix-up to coolly find the net from fully 40 yards.
 
London City Lionesses meanwhile lost ground on the top three as they were beaten 2-0 by London Bees in their derby match. The damage was inflicted inside the opening twenty minutes, Ellie Wilson giving the Bees the lead from a pass by Amelia Hazard, who added the second herself when she scored from close range. The Lionesses tried to get back into the game but the Bees defended stoutly to secure a result which strengthens their position in the top half of the table, one place below their local rivals.
 
Coventry Utd had started the day with just goal difference keeping them off the bottom of the table, but such is the tightness of the bottom six, their 3-2 victory over Crystal Palace lifts them up four places and into a mid-table position. Coventry were quick out of the blocks and took the lead in the fifth minute through Shannon O'Brien, with Helen Dermody adding a second shortly afterwards. Palace recovered from the early setbacks, and stunned the home side with a two-goal blast just before half time to bring the scores level again. Ashleigh Goddard renewed hopes for Dean Davenport's side when she pulled a goal back and two minutes later, Magda Mosengo equalised when she prodded home following a goalmouth scramble. The game was to swing again early in the second half, when O'Brien broke through to score her second goal on the day and this time Coventry were able to close the game out for three precious points and seal their first home victory of the season.
