Dunia Susi seals win for Chelsea against Doncaster

Dunia Susi

Dunia Susi scored a brace as Chelsea Ladies beat Doncaster Rovers Belles 3-1 in their Women's Super League opener.

Belles took the lead through Alyssa Lagonia on 24 minutes after a Chelsea goalkeeping error, only for Helen Lander to equalise six minutes later.

In a game of few chances, midfielder Susi expertly volleyed in a cross from winger Claire Rafferty to give the Blues a deserved lead.

Deep in injury-time Susi secured the win with another well-taken strike.

The England midfielder, who was named player of the match, stood out in a game of little attacking creativity.

The win puts Chelsea Ladies second in the table behind Bristol Academy Ladies on goal difference following Sunday's opening of the second Women's Super League season.
