Bridgwater United 0-2 Portsmouth

POMPEY produced a superb second half display to secure a 2-0 National League victory over Bridgwater.

Cherelle Khassal and Emma Jones both struck after the break to secure all the visitors all three points at Fairfax Park.

Bridgwater put in a strong display despite defeat and Portsmouth really had Hannah Haughton to thank for not conceding before the break.

She did brilliantly in the opening stages to keep out Chloe Gilroy's effort with her feet after the forward had burst through on goal.

Jenna Markham also forced Haughton into action, as the home side kept pushing for an opening goal.

And when Markham did beat Haughton to the ball late in the first half, she was unable to keep her shot down.

Amy Goddard then met a delivery from Meesha Dudley-Jones, but her header was comfortably claimed by Haughton.

In the second half it was all Bridgwater still and Haughton again came to the rescue once again when the action restarted, getting down to deny Gilroy from a tight angle.

The keeper then showed her attacking abilities by providing the assist when the Blues broke the deadlock on 53 minutes.

Her ball over the top of the Bridgwater back-line was collected by Khassal, who lobbed Bethany-May Howard.

Emma Jones came off the bench and secured all three points on 87 minutes, arrowing home from the edge of the box after being found by Sammy Quayle.
