Jodie Michalska’s second half strike was cancelled out by a late goal from Yeovil debutant Lucy Quinn.

Hannah Cain hit the woodwork three times for the hosts.

The first was the best of the lot as Cain curled an effort from outside of the box against the bar before another volley from close range also rebounded off the woodwork.

The breakthrough came with 20 minutes to go when Chloe Dixon’s cross evaded the defence and Michalska was there to tap home after Cain had again hit the post from distance.
