Yeovil Town Ladies 0-0 Arsenal Women

Arsenal's Vivianne Miedema
Arsenal had 22 corners but were unable to find a breakthrough

Women's FA Cup finalists Arsenal's bid to qualify for the Champions League suffered a blow as bottom club Yeovil Town held them to a goalless draw.

The result saw the Lady Glovers claim only their second point of the season, having also held Birmingham in their last game on 18 April.

The Gunners dominated the game in terms of shots at goal, but found Yeovil keeper Megan Walsh in fine form.

Arsenal stay third, while Yeovil remain bottom without a league goal this term.

However, the result will go down as arguably the greatest in the part-time Somerset side's history, against one of the best-funded women's sides in Europe.

It left Arsenal four points below the top two - with only the top two sides qualifying for next season's Women's Champions League - with four rounds of matches remaining.
