Women's Super League: Everton v Brighton & Hove Albion

Everton ended a run of back-to-back losses as they struck twice inside 10 second-half minutes in Southport to deservedly beat Brighton Women.

Chloe Kelly hit her fourth goal in five Womens Super League games as she stuck out a right foot to net on 57 minutes.

Esme Morgan then headed in from a 67th-minute corner for her first goal since arriving on loan from Manchester City.

Brighton are now second bottom on two points, still searching for their first league victory of the season.
