Jordan Nobbs scored twice as Arsenal Ladies opened up an eight-point lead at the top of the Women's Super League with a 4-0 win over Doncaster Belles.

England star Kelly Smith set up Nobbs in the fifth minute and she opened the scoring with a low shot from inside the box.

The same duo combined to double Arsenal's advantage with Nobbs tapping in from a pinpoint Smith cross.

Katie Chapman effectively ended the game as a contest two minutes before half time when she charged forward to score from the edge of the box.

And although Arsenal eased off in the second half, they scored a fourth 15 minutes from time. This time Kim Little applied the finishing touch after a slick passing move.
