Albion 2 Albion Women were held to a frustrating draw by Queens Park Rangers at Withdean, in an unconvincing performance by Jay Lovett's side.
A brace from Catherine O'Hagan was not enough to continue a run of five consecutive victories at home, as the Seagulls failed to capitalise cheap burberry bags outlet on defeats for both title rivals Millwall and Reading. The Seagulls started the game sluggishly; falling behind when Elly Maggs took advantage of some slack defending to slide the ball home from close range. Albion eventually settled and began to put more pressure on the Rangers goal, but were dealt another setback when Lily Agg was forced off injured after 20 minutes. The first clear cut chances fell to substitute burberry air force 1 Kim Stenning, who narrowly failed to connect with Lauren Cheshire's ball into the box, before Tammy Waine headed over after meeting Kirsty Barton's corner. But O'Hagan brought parity to the scoreline right on half time, as her superb looping header rose over keeper Sophie Cheadle into the net. O'Hagan struck again two minutes after the restart, ending a lovely Albion move by slotting in Cherelle Khassal's cross at the far post to give Lovett's side the lead. The Hoops then ventured forward in search of the equaliser, as Kim Meadows's angled shot went narrowly wide of Lucy Mangan's goal. But Albion also had a number of chances to secure the three points; some good link up play involving O'Hagan and Khassal saw the latter's shot tipped over the bar by Cheadle, before Stenning shot wide after meeting Charlotte Gurr's ball into the box. The Seagulls came to rue those missed opportunities as Meadows struck at the far post with twenty minutes left on the clock; bringing the league's bottom club back on level terms. QPR could have even grabbed the three points themselves, but Katie O'Leary fired her shot straight at Mangan despite being unmarked inside the box. It was a disappointing result which felt more like a defeat, with manager Lovett admitting that his side did not play at their best on the day. "At the start of the second half we scored a well worked goal, but after that burberry outlet store we took our foot off the gas and conceded the equaliser.
It's a shame, but we'll pick ourselves up and we'll go again." Albion: Mangan (GK); Cheshire, Ryan (c), Waine, Boswell; Barton, Perry, Gurr (Rabson 83); O'Hagan, Agg (Stenning 19), Khassal. Subs not outlet online burberry used: James, Somes.
