Wynne rues missed opportunities as Villa nick late leveller
Midfielder Megan Wynne had the delight of scoring her first goal for the club slightly tinged by frustration as Millwall Lionesses were forced to settle for a 2-2 draw against Aston Villa on Sunday.
Twice the home side took the lead at The Den in their penultimate FA WSL2 match of the campaign, and twice Lionesses were pegged back by their determined opponents.
"It's a shame we couldn't get the three points, but it was a good team performance," said Wynne.
"It's just those final bits that we need to touch up on now so we can see games out.
"I think that's been the thing in many games – we have been on top and we keep the ball so well, we keep possession, and then in the final third we just can't seem to put it away.
"We've had great chances, their keeper has made a few good saves. It's just finishing games off. We’ve been the better team again, it’s just frustrating."
Millwall deservedly led at half-time as Amber Gaylor pinched the ball and fired inside Jess Myers’ near post on 42 minutes.
After the restart Villa's Bethan Merrick curled a free-kick narrowly wide before equalising on 56 minutes, rifling home from 25 yards.
Lionesses reclaimed the lead just 10 minutes later when Ashlee Hincks picked out the unmarked Wynne, who nodded home from six yards.
But Villa levelled a second time when Jade Richards nodded Merrick's free-kick back across goal for George to nod in and snatch a point in the 89th minute.
Visitors Villa looked to be heading towards a defeat as they headed towards the final two minutes, but with the clock ticking down Hannah George nodded home to snatch a point and deny Millwall maximum points right at the death.
