WSL highlights: Tottenham 1-0 Liverpool

A Rachel Furness penalty was enough to beat Liverpool and give Tottenham Hotspur their first win since being promoted to the Women's Super League.

Furness was brought down in the box by Becky Jane just before half-time.

And the Northern Ireland international made no mistake from the spot, sending Reds goalkeeper Anke Preuss the wrong way to score her first Spurs goal.

Liverpool's Niamh Fahey was sent off for a foul on Rosella Ayane, who was through on goal, after 64 minutes.
