BRADFORD City made it three wins in a row with a 5-0 success over Long Eaton United in the SSE Women's FA Cup.

A double from Ellie White followed strikes by Abi Housecroft, Hannah Campbell and Laura Elford, who broke the deadlock with a penalty in the second half.

After lower-league outfit Long Eaton held the Bantams to a goalless first period, captain Shauna Legge was delighted with her team's response after the interval as they continued their winning run.

"It's just good to get another win under our belts," said Legge.

"We've not really been getting the results that we deserve recently but we've built from last week and carried that through to this week. I'm really happy with that and it felt comfortable."

"First half, they were getting a lot of bodies behind the ball but we just had to be patient.

"We just kept pushing and kept building and what we said at half-time is that we needed to start switching play out and trying to penetrate their lines a bit better. I think we did that in the second half."

Elford was clinical from 12 yards to give City the lead early in the second half, after Abi Lee had been brought down in the area, and from there Bradford never looked back.

Housecroft threaded the ball through to Charlotte Stuart out wide and was then on the receiving end of her cross to make it two, before a perfectly-weighted pass by White found Campbell for three.

White then turned scorer, dropping her shoulder to open space and then curling home the fourth goal, and completed her brace from another Stuart cut-back.

Housecroft said: "The penalty definitely opened the floodgates. It takes one goal for us and then we push and push and get more. It's like we get the ball rolling."

Bradford have now scored 13 goals in their last three games, while picking up three clean sheets as well as three wins.

They travel to Derby County in the FA Women's Premier League and welcome Thackley in the West Riding County Cup before Christmas, then face league rivals Leicester City in the FA Cup third round in the New Year.

Legge is confident of their current form continuing in all competitions, after a difficult start to the season.

"Hopefully this can be the start of a good cup run," she said.

"We've started building momentum now, so hopefully we can take that into the league. There's a good vibe, we're playing good football and we're feeling good."
