West Ham United Ladies endured another frustrating afternoon in the FA Women's Premier League Southern Division, as they were held to a 1-1 draw at home to relegation-threatened Queens Park Rangers.
Bottom-club Rangers hit the front after just nine minutes, when Sophie Fogarty collected Elly Magg's cross, before finishing emphatically. It was a lead they would cling on to until the latter stages of the contest, as the visitors went in search of a second away win in succession.
However, parity was restored with 78 minutes on the clock, courtesy of midfielder Lindsey Morgan's sixth goal of the campaign.
Sadly a winner was not forthcoming and West Ham's winless sequence in the league now stands at four. Ironically, the point lifts the Hammers into third, above Brighton and Hove Albion, but sees them lose further ground at the top.
With frontrunners Millwall Lionesses and second-placed Reading both winning, the Royals are now a considerable eleven points clear of West Ham.
For the R's, meanwhile, their battle to beat the drop continues. Though the draw at Thurrock FC's Ship Lane extends their run unbeaten to four, they remain rooted to the foot of the table, three points adrift of Tottenham Hotspur and safety.
The Hammers travel to Brighton on Sunday for a 2pm kick-off in their next FA Women's Premier League Southern Division fixture.
