Millwall Lionesses show more progress – but still without league win

MILLWALL LIONESSES are still searching for a first Women’s Championship win of the season after last weekend’s 3-2 defeat to Leicester City.

City took the lead in just the second minute when Melissa Johnson got through and slotted past Lionesses keeper Chloe Sansom.

Chris Phillips’ side thought they had equalised it the eighteenth minute but after Michelle Young finished the referee called play back for a foul.

Sansom prevented City doubling their lead in the 26th minute when she saved Johnson’s spot-kick awarded for a foul by Ylenia Priest.

And four minutes later the visitors levelled when Evie Clarke headed home.

But Priest conceded her second penalty, this time for handball, and Libby Smith stepped up to beat Sansom from twelve yards.

Ella Franklin-Fraiture made it 3-1 to the Foxes eight minutes into the second half before Phillips brought on Beth Lumsden, Beth Harford and Lia Cataldo in a bid to get back into the game.

With eighteen minutes left Cataldo won a penalty and Clarke scored her second of the game to make it 3-2.

The Lionesses finished the game with nine players after losing Cataldo to injury and Freya Bailes to two yellow cards.

The Lionesses host Tottenham at Dartford on January 27.
