Bristol City and West Ham both came into this game having won just one of their first 11 WSL matches this season

West Ham struck a huge blow in the Women’s Super League relegation battle with victory at Bristol City.

The league’s bottom two met at Ashton Gate, and West Ham’s win means they are now three points clear of bottom club City.

Honoka Hayashi fired West Ham ahead in the first half, before Amalie Thestrup equalised shortly after the break.

But Viviane Asseyi squeezed home the winner in the 55th minute for the jubilant visitors.
