Everton held by Academy

Everton are still looking for their first win of the season after being held to a goalless draw by Bristol Academy.
After failing to win their first four games, the pressure was on the Blues to outwit Bristol, the FA Cup finalists. But despite a decent show from Everton's lone striker Natasha Dowie the visitors more than held their own, making it six points from as many games to keep themselves in fifth place.
Both sides started brightly but chances were few and far between as the two sides defended resolutely early on. Dowie was the Toffees' shining light, providing a nuisance to Bristol down the right wing and twice linking up with Jill Scott and Toni Duggan in front of goal.
But the best Everton could produce was three long-range efforts - none of which troubled England international 'keeper Siobhan Chamberlain - and a close range Dowie strike ruled out for offside eight minutes into the game.
At the other end, Jessica Fishlock looked threatening at times, with some decent passing and movement around the box. The Welsh international's best contribution was a move on 33 minutes when she exchanged a series of clever passes with striker Lillie Billson, before Everton defender Amy Kane stepped in to clear the Everton lines.
After a first half of limited action, it was the visitors who made the better of the play after the break with Corinne Yorston thumping in a 20-yard effort that deflected through and drifted narrowly wide. Everton struck back with a headed attempt from Toni Duggan that was just off target.
As the game drew to a close both sides had good opportunities to take all three points. Academy substitute Helen Bleazard caught Rachel Brown on the back foot with a cross-cum-shot that had the Everton keeper beaten but hit the post and bounced out to safety.
With just five minutes remaining, Jill Scott thought she had won it but her close range header was superbly cleared off the line by Michelle Green.
But neither team could break the deadlock and the pressure is now on Everton to chalk up their first victory of the season at Doncaster Belles on Thursday.
