Watford striker Ellie Mason says beating Aston Villa to register their first Women's Super League Two win of 2015 has filled them with confidence.

Mason scored the only goal in Sunday's triumph at Sutton Coldfield, lifting Watford off the bottom of the table.

"We will take confidence from this win. We will all go out and give our absolute best in the games to come," on-loan Chelsea forward Mason said.

Meanwhile, Oxford United moved up to seventh with victory over Durham.

The win was their first since the opening day of the season and sees them move level with the Wildcats in the standing with seven points from six games.

Katherine Nutman turned home the decisive goal on 37 minutes after Kayleigh Hines headed down Katie Stanley's corner.

Durham had gone close to opening the scoring, with Beth Hepple getting on the end of Jess Havelock's free-kick only to see her lob over Demi Lambourne come back off the bar.

Lambourne scrambled to deny Vic Linsley an equaliser after the goalkeeper had initially fumbled a header from Jordan Atkinson.
