Tottenham Hotspur 3-3 Aston Villa
Aston Villa recovered after letting a 2-0 lead slip to eventually salvage a point thanks to Rachel Daly’s strike with six minutes of normal time remaining in East London today.
After Kirsty Hanson dispatched Kenza Dali’s ball home and Daly doubled their advantage, Spurs hit back.
Eveliina Summanen got her first of the afternoon to complete a move involving Beth England and Ashleigh Neville and completed her brace just after the restart with a shot that came back down off the bar. Then, 12 minutes later, England scored her customary goal to put the home side in front.
Daly earned the Midland side a draw with her header in the closing stages.
