Allen earns Villa point at West Ham


Remi Allen’s late equaliser earned Aston Villa a point at West Ham in the Women’s Super League.

Allen, a summer signing from Leicester, headed into the far corner to keep Villa’s unbeaten record intact.

Following an error by Villa’s Anita Asante, Adriana Leon gave the hosts an early lead.

In the second half, Dagny Brynjarsdottir nearly made it 2-0 but headed straight at Villa goalkeeper Hannah Hampton.

West Ham had not scored a goal in the WSL in over 600 minutes prior to this game, but they got off to a fast start and deservedly broke the deadlock through Leon.

Moments later, the Canada international nearly doubled her tally after capitalising on a sloppy back pass from Elisha N’Dow, but Hampton recovered to clear the danger.

Villa grew stronger as the game progressed, and Chantelle Boye-Hlorkah squandered a golden opportunity by failing to get a decisive touch on Pacheco’s corner, before Ramona Petzelberger was denied by the crossbar.

Late on, Hammers keeper Mackenzie Arnold did well to parry Shania Hayles’ goalbound strike, but it was too late for the 27-year-old to prevent Allen from salvaging a point for the visitors.
