Bristol City picked up their fifth successive win with a dominant 3-0 victory over Watford in the FA Women’s Championship.

City scored two goals inside the first 45 minutes, one from Abi Harrison, who then turned provider to Chloe Bull, before Bristol put the game to bed in the second half with their third and Bull’s second of the afternoon.

The Robins controlled proceedings at the Orbital Fasteners Stadium from the whistle, and it wasn’t long before they opened the scoring.

Harrison shifted the ball into space on the edge of the area and rifled the ball into the far corner to bag her seventh goal in as many games, and assert City’s dominance.

Watford looked knocked by the early goal, but managed to hold off a close second as Melissa Johnson’s hit was denied by Georgie Ferguson in the 22nd minute.

But just four minutes later, Harrison burst down the right-hand side, cutting it back for Bull who coolly slotted home into the bottom corner to double City’s advantage.

Watford picked up the pressure just before half time, with Anne Miewald making it difficult for City to score again, blocking Aggie Beever-Jones’ attempt, before Emma Beckett’s attempt was denied to keep them goalless.

Ronell Humes’ presence after the break looked to be the Golden Girls’ secret weapon, with her attempt at goal foiled by Fran Bentley.

But Bristol’s Bull was formidable, hammering home her second of the afternoon with a fine strike into the far corner in the 71st minute.

Watford raised their game, determined to score – a goalmouth scramble from a corner presented a moment of danger for the Robins, but the defence hooked the ball clear to save their skin before the final whistle.

City managed to keep their clean sheet intact while also extending their unbeaten streak to five, but Watford remain bottom of the table going into the international break.
