Things are going bad to worse for Doncaster while Reading can start breathing again and Sunderland have to look behind their back again.
Doncaster 1 Reading 4 leaves us with the following situation :
7. Reading 9 pts – 9 played 14
8. Sunderland 9 pts -18 played 14
9. Doncaster 0 pt -31 played 11
Sunderland are back into the relegation race following their defeat away to Notts County by two goals to one. They are nine points ahead of the Belles and virtually safe but football is a strange game.
The remaining games are :
Doncaster v Arsenal 06/10
Doncaster v Liverpool 09/10
Doncaster v Notts County 16/10
Sunderland v Notts County 29/10
Arsenal v Doncaster 30/10
Chelsea v Reading 30/10
Reading v Doncaster 06/11
Sunderland v Birmingham 06/11
Doncaster have three consecutive home games and need to collect at least six points out of nine to keep the pressure on Sunderland and Reading.
Can they keep it tight at the back and finally score against an Arsenal side with virtually nothing to play for except maybe a new contract or a chance to stay next season for certain players.
Then with a short turnaround, they will face Liverpool, who are still fighting for the third place and finally Notts County who made sure of their presence next season in WSL 1 by beating Sunderland.
