FA WSL relegation battle ep 6

Judgement day is coming on Thursday with a huge Doncaster v Sunderland game. The winner will take an option in the battle to stay up.


Last week-end results saw, Reading and Doncaster beaten while Sunderland did not play so a status quo.

Manchester City 2 Reading 0

Liverpool 1 Doncaster 0



7 Reading 6 pts – 8 pl 11

8 Sunderland 6 pts – 20 pl 12

9 Doncaster 0 pt -25 pl9


The upcoming Doncaster v Sunderland game is crucial a proper six pointer because :

Should Doncaster win, they would close the gap to three points with Sunderland and Reading and six games to play. While Sunderland would have three games only to play. Reading will be at home Liverpool at the same time and looking to get their first win under their belt.

Should Sunderland win the gap between Sunderland and Doncaster would go up to nine points and even with three games in hand, that would be a very difficult task for Doncaster to achieve. Doncaster would in that case hope that Reading lose at home to Liverpool.
