FA WSL relegation battle ep 7

Sunderland save their bacon, Doncaster sink into more trouble and Liverpool saves the Belles from virtual relegation by beating Reading.

Doncaster 1 Sunderland 4

Reading 0 Liverpool 1


Sunderland are nine points clear of the Belles and it should be enough to stay up. Reading could also have saved their bacon, had Bruton converted a penalty while the score was 0-0 before Zelem won the game for Liverpool.

Reading are six points clear of the Belles with no win for both sides but a better goal difference for Reading -9 compared to -28. It is now a two horses race and here are the remaining games :

Reading v Chelsea 11/09

Doncaster v Reading 24/09

Doncaster v Arsenal 06/10

Doncaster v Liverpool 09/10

Doncaster v Notts County 16/10

Arsenal v Doncaster 30/10

Chelsea v Reading 30/10

Reading v Doncaster 06/11


Unless one of the bottom two team manage to grab a win against another team, it will go down to the two head to head games on the 24th of September and 6th of November.

Mathematically, Doncaster have many chances to catch up on Reading but form says otherwise.
