Arsenal remain top of the Nationwide Women's Premier League following a comprehensive 5-1 win at Bristol Academy.

Trudy Williams gave the home side the lead midway through the first half. Arsenal soon got to grips with the game and Alex Scott arrived at the far post to restore parity. Within minutes of Scott's equaliser, Arsenal took the lead when Ciara Grant's cross was deflected into her own net by a Bristol defender.

England international Kelly Smith was introduced to the proceedings with 25 minutes remaining - and the visitors took control of the game.

Grant scored the third following good work by Rachel McArthur before Smith and former Bristol City midfielder McArthur got in on the act.
