Lewes Women extended their run to four consecutive win as they came back from a goal down at Chichester last Sunday.

In the Sussex derby, the hosts took an early lead when Chloe Tucker fired a free-kick into the top corner.

City had several chances to get their second but couldn't find their way past Leah Samain in Rookettes' goal.

Lewes drew level still in the first half when Avilla Bergin and Rebecca Carter put Katie McIntyre into position to round the keeper and finish.

Eight minutes into the second half Carter stole away from Lauren Cheshire in the area to side-foot in from six yards.

Rookettes climbed the table to settle into second position in Premier League south.

Skipper Kelly Newton said: “I felt we took a grip of the game after half-time, we had a lot more control in the second half.

"We’ve had a tough run of games so it’s good to come through with 12 points out of 12”.

The only downer for Rookettes was the injury of Tammy Waine.

Manager John Donoghue said: "Tammy’s gone to get that checked out. I think that’s also a consequence of playing three tough games in a week.

"We’ve had four tough games against very good sides. It’s good come through that, and to get some momentum going."
