The FAWPL Northern Division side making the long journey down to the south coast once again after Brighton made the error of having 7 substitutes named on their bench when FA Women’s Cup competition rules state just 5 will be named on the bench.

Ainsley Strickland gave Blackburn Rovers Ladies the perfect start opening the scoring after just 3 minutes, but that was just the beginning of a frantic opening quarter of an hour as Brighton were back on level terms just 2 minutes later Lily Agg with the goal, 2 minutes later they had the lead Lucy Somes scoring to put them 2-1 ahead. On the 15 minute mark Sophie Perry scored from the penalty spot to make it 3-1 the half time score.
