West Ham United Women 0-1 Everton: Visitors stun Hammers to move clear of Yeovil

Willie Kirk
Victory against West Ham is a huge boost for Willie Kirk's side's chances of survival in the WSL

A late Hannah Cain goal saw WSL strugglers Everton stun West Ham United Women and record just their third win of the campaign.

Striker Cain latched on to Simone Magill's through ball to calmly slot home with two minutes of normal time left.

The result may prove vital in securing Everton's WSL survival, with victory moving them five points clear of bottom-side Yeovil.

Matt Beard's side failed to take advantage of a dominate display at Rush Green Stadium, in which they missed several chances to score.

Everton goalkeeper Kirstie Levell was forced into making two excellent saves from Gilly Flaherty and Alisha Lehmann in the first half, before Adriana Leon was denied by a hard-working visitors' defence in the second period.

The Hammers stay sixth in the WSL after their fourth loss in five league games.
