Doncaster Rovers Belles 0 Chelsea 1 (Coombs 75)
A second half goal from substitute Laura Coombs gave Chelsea the points at the Keepmoat Stadium and a winning start for new manager Emma Hayes.
Chelsea made a positive start to the game and almost went in front as Helen Bleazard fired a shot narrowly over the bar. Helen Lander was to go even closer moments later as she capitalised on a defensive lapse and lifted the ball over Mary Earps only to see her shot land on the roof of the net.
The visitors continued to create the better of the chances with both Sophie Ingle and Adriana Martin going close but with fifteen minutes remaining, they grabbed the only goal of the game when Dunia Susi set up Coombs to fire home from just inside the area.
