With a number of players unavailable and no substitutes, Newmarket were forced to rejig their side.

It was 0-0 at half-time, but the visitors played with more confidence during the second half and broke the deadlock through Lucie Swann’s first goal for the club.

And the victory was soon made safe when Brooke Le Maire scored for the second week running.

The victory leaves the third team fourth in the table ahead of Saturday’s home clash against Cambridge South IV (11am).
