Lucia Kendall opened the scoring during the second half after an even first 45, netting on 48 minutes as Saints came out the blocks.

A second soon followed via Ella Pusey, who found the bottom corner after being sent through one-on-one.

Pusey added a decisive second on 67 minutes, checking back and firing home to confirm a successful evening for Saints.

“The Ipswich match was a credit to the two teams and it was an advert for women’s football and the pathway.

“We’ve got to grow from that, we’ve got to learn from that and we’ve got to come back stronger again.

“I trust these players and I know what they’ll do. They’ll support each other and we’ll be ready for Sunday’s game."
