Arsenal climbed to second with a 3-1 win at Millwall Lionesses, Kim Little hitting her fifth hat-trick of the season.

Goal machine Little took her season's tally to 37 as the Gunners stayed in contention for a seventh straight league title.

The Scotland star put the visitors in front after 19 minutes, but Millwall fought back well and Emma Beckett levelled the scores nine minutes after the break.

Further Little goals in the 64th and 77th minutes proved decisive, however, the result keeping Arsenal on Leeds' heels and with two games in hand.
