Following a barren first half, Ikidi netted in the 51st and 84th minutes to seal Stella Carisson's ladies third win in a row.

It was the first time the Nigerian will score a brace in a match for her side since she joined in 2011 from league rivals Linkoping. And they were her only goals in 17 starts this season.

The win lifts Pitea to the fourth in the league table with 28 points from 17 matches and they face Kvarnsveden in their next league encounter on October 8.
