Alisha Lehmann
West Ham's Swiss forward Alisha Lehmann scored just her second goal of the season

West Ham moved up to seventh place in the WSL after beating Bristol City.

Alisha Lehmann had a shot cleared off the line in the opening moments before putting the Hammers in front as her fine solo run ended with a deflected shot from the edge of the box.

Lehmann missed from close up midway through the second half before Rosella Ayane nearly equalised for City.

But Jane Ross secured victory late on as she intercepted a back pass and tucked the ball home.
