Durham Women took a point from their trip to Lewes – despite arguably having the better of the play.
In a game of few real chances it was the Wildcats who dictated possession for large spells, but they failed to make their superiority count.
Durham were unchanged from the side that drew with Coventry United last time out and they had to deal with some early pressure from their hosts.
But after the first ten minutes, it was the North East side who began to control the clash.
Kathryn Hill sent a well-struck effort from 30 yards narrowly over the bar before Tatiana Saunders’ strong punch stopped Liz Ejupi connecting with Lauren Briggs’ cross.
Durham then had to clear their lines after Naoisha McAloon failed to hold Lucy Porter’s effort from inside the area, but that was a rare foray forward for the Rooks as Durham pushed forward.
Rio Hardy sent a glancing header narrowly wide from Beth Hepple’s teasing delivery before the midfielder whipped in another fine delivery for Sarah Wilson – whose powerful header was held by Saunders.
The second half was equally competitive with Durham again seeing plenty of possession, but chances were at a real premium.
Hepple saw an effort deflected narrowly wide after some battling from Hardy in the box, before a string of corners put Lewes under some real pressure.
Neither goalkeeper really had a save to make in the second period though, with Durham having to show some resilience to deal with a spell of home pressure as the game wore on.
But there was to be no late goal, with both sides having to settle for a point.
