Bristol City move up to second

Although four of the teams in the FA Women’s Championship were involved in the Vitality Women’s FA Cup on Sunday, three matches in the league did go ahead.

Leaders Liverpool were one of those teams who were playing in the Cup but second placed London City Lionesses were in action. A victory would see them narrow the gap on the Reds to seven points, whilst visitors Bristol City had the incentive of replacing them in second if they were to beat them.

Things started well for City as they took the lead just before the half hour, Abi Harrison scoring from the penalty spot, but the Lionesses were back on level terms just four minutes later when Lily Agg equalised against her former club. City went back in front early in the second half thanks to Aggie Beever-Jones and Abbie Palmer then curled home the third via a 25-yard free kick. Alli Murphy gave the home side renewed hope when she pulled a goal back but City saw the game out for a 3-2 victory, which takes them into the top two for the first time this season.

Crystal Palace travelled to Sunderland on the back of two defeats and looking to get their season back on course. A solitary goal on the hour mark, scored by Molly-Mae Sharpe, earned Palace a 1-0 win and they moved back up to fifth place and only two points away from second.

At the other end of the table, Blackburn Rovers picked up a crucial 1-0 victory against Lewes which takes them out of the bottom three. Kayleigh McDonald scored the only goal of the game for Rovers, who needed to negotiate late pressure from the Rookettes in order to bring an end to their run of five league matches without a win.
