Gareth Taylor’s side travelled to the Broadfield Stadium aiming to extend our unbeaten league run to 13 games and further strengthen our title challenge with three points.
But against a dogged Seagulls side, success in East Sussex was far from a formality with Amy Merrick’s side battling to preserve their top-flight status.
We took the lead through Khadija ‘Bunny’ Shaw’s poked effort which wrote her name in the Club’s history book as she became the highest-scoring player for our Women’s team in a single season.
The strike represented her 25th goal of the season – taking her above Nikita Parris’ tally of 24.
However, the hosts hit back on the cusp of half-time when Elisabeth Terland volleyed an unstoppable effort past Sandy MacIver.
But with the game looking likely to end in a draw as we battled to break down a stern Brighton defence, Bunny popped up in the 89th minute to snatch three points with a coolly taken strike.
