Charlton Athletic Women can’t upset top-flight Brighton in FA WSL League Cup tie

Kayleigh Green converted a pair of second-half penalties to help Brighton & Hove Albion to a comfortable 3-0 win over a battling Charlton Athletic in their FA WSL League Cup opener.

The Addicks put up valiant resistance against their top-tier opponents but Ini Umotong edged the Seagulls ahead with a powerful header just before half-time.

Green then took advantage of fouls on Amanda Nilden and herself after the break to score twice from 12 yards.

Charlton’s best chance of the first half came minutes before the break when Rachel Newborough flashed a ball across the six-yard box and Jenna Legg was inches away from turning home.
