England forward Toni Duggan continued her post-World Cup scoring form to help Manchester City to a 3-0 win against bottom side Bristol Academy.

Duggan crashed in off the bar from outside the box to put City ahead, and netted again on the rebound after the break to make it three in two games.

Daphne Corboz scored the third, ending a flowing team move to seal the win.

City were dominant and Bristol goalkeeper Mary Earps made a number of fine saves to keep the score down.

The crossbar also saved the home side, denying Duggan a hat-trick, who also missed an open goal late on.

Victory sees them climb above Liverpool into fifth place on 11 points.

Defeat leaves Bristol Academy, who gave debuts to Christie Murray and Evdokia Popadinov, without a win in eight games of the 2015 campaign.

Subs: Popadinova, Townsend, Murray, Brummel, Reid, Jones.

Man City Women: Bardsley, Bronze, Stokes, Beattie, Houghton, Johnston, Scott, Duggan, Christiansen, Parris, Radtke.

Subs: Brooks, Corboz, Lipman, Brougham, McManus.
