Aston Villa set up an FA Women’s Continental League Cup Group A decider next week after running out 9-0 winners at Coventry United.

Villa over took Durham on goal-difference ahead of their clash with the Wildcats in the third and final round of group stage games.

Nadine Hanssen struck three times in 21 first-half minutes against Villa’s hosts from the Championship, Nicola Syme also on target before the break.

Emma Follis converted from the spot five minutes into the second half, with Diana Silva and Shania Hayles each bagging a brace.
