Arsenal Ladies strengthened their position at the top of the League with a 4-2 win over Doncaster Rovers' Belles on Wednesday night.

The Gunners appeared to be well on course for a routine victory when Yvonne Tracy smashed home from close range after just five minutes. However the Belles equalised two minutes later with a 25-yard strike which, due to the wet conditions, evaded the clutches of Arsenal stopper Emma Bryne.

A goal either side of the break from Lianne Sanderson restored parity before Jayne Ludlow headed in a fourth. The game won, Vic Akers' side eased up and were duly punished when Precious Hamilton registered late on for Rovers.
