Brentford Women's FC 2 Tottenham Hotspur Development 1

30 January 2017

Bees leave it late to secure three points on Sunday

Jenn Amols Brett came off the bench to score a last-gasp winner as Brentford Women's FC closed the gap at the top of the table to just three points with a hard-fought 2-1 win over Tottenham Hotspur Development.

After going five without a win in all competitions, the signs didn't look good for Ryan Peters' side in the early stages at Lampton School as second-placed Spurs took an early lead. The visitors' striker was given time and space on the edge of the box to fire past the helpless Roxy Clark.

On a wet afternoon in West London chances were at a premium for both sides and it took until midway through the second-half for The Bees to find a route back into the game. A fine ball through the middle from Janae Pine freed top scorer Dana Johnson and she rounded the keeper to net her 13th goal of the season.

The Bees looked the more likely to grab a winner but they had to wait until four minutes from time for it to arrive. Saffron Hand was fouled on the edge of the box and Amols Brett's well-struck free-kick skimmed off the wall before finding the bottom corner.

With Greater London Women's Football League Division One leaders Victoire Ladies not in action, The Bees are now just three points off the league summit but having played more matches than those around them.

Both the First-Team and Development Team are without a fixture next weekend before they return to league action in a fortnight's time with games against Enfield Town Reserves and South London Laces respectively.
