West Ham United 0-0 Aston Villa: Visitors move off bottom spot

Relegation-threatened Aston Villa moved off the bottom of the Women's Super League after a goalless draw at fellow strugglers West Ham.

In a game of few chances it was the hosts who came closest to breaking the deadlock.

Gilly Flaherty's header went wide in the opening minutes and Katerina Svitkova forced a save from Villa keeper Lisa Weiss in the second half.

Villa are level on points with Bristol City but have a better goal difference.

The bottom two meet at Banks's Stadium on Saturday.

It was an important result for Marcus Bignot's side, who had fallen to an 8-0 defeat at Manchester City on Saturday.

West Ham moved up to ninth with the point and they host fifth-placed Everton on Sunday.
