The Saints started brightly and had a lot of early possession, however with ten minutes gone, Shane Sutton went close for the home side but headed just over, after latching on to a Matt Hearsey corner.

The WPL Champions continued to control the game despite Sean Evans having two off target shots from outside of the box that failed to trouble Paul Harrison.
