WSL Highlights: Tottenham Hotspur Women 2-1 West Ham

Rianna Dean's stoppage-time header snatched Tottenham a 2-1 win in a lively Women's Super League London derby against West Ham.

The Hammers thought they had secured a point when Kenza Dali finished neatly into the bottom right-hand corner in the 89th minute, but there was still time for Dean to grab a winner.

Both teams started the game brightly but it was Spurs who deservedly took the lead in the 30th minute.

Emma Mitchell, making her full debut after signing on loan from Arsenal, curled a shot inside the bottom left-hand corner from outside the box after the ball had been half-cleared following a corner.

Spurs winger Rosella Ayane, who caused the West Ham defence problems with her pace and direct running, hit the crossbar with a header 10 minutes later as Spurs finished the half on top.

Tottenham started to build pressure after the break and again came close in the 68th minute when the ball fell to Dean on the volley but it was well saved by West Ham goalkeeper Courtney Brosnan.

Mitchell rocketed an effort inches wide of a post in the 85th minute and just four minutes later West Ham drew level through Dali's smart finish.

The referee indicated nine minutes of added time and West Ham came to life, nearly scrambling the ball home in the second minute of stoppage time but Tessel Middag could only shoot straight at the goalkeeper.

The Hammers were left to rue that chance as Spurs scored on the break in the last minute of added time. Good running from substitute Angela Addison down the left found Dean in the box and she looped a header into the top left-hand corner.
