Report from the Golden Girls' latest WSL2 match

Ladies | Watford 1-1 Doncaster Belles

It was honours even at Kings Langley on Thursday night as Watford Ladies gained an impressive 1-1 draw with unbeaten Doncaster Belles.

Head Coach Keith Boanas handed debuts to former England goalkeeper Jo Fletcher and young defender Tyra Poole amongst five changes from the side that were beaten at Brighton on Sunday.

Watford started well and Rinsola Babajide forced a save from Nicky Davies in the Belles' goal, whilst Adekite Fatuga-Dada fired an effort over the bar.

It was the visitors though that went in front on the stroke of half-time when Kirsty Hanson's shot was turned in by Courtney Sweetman-Kirk from close-range.

Charlotte Kerr nearly levelled immediately but her header flew just wide.

Boanas's side did restore parity early in the second-half when Leah Cudone scored from six yards and she nearly added a second soon after.

Chances were at a premium as the half progressed and despite some late Doncaster pressure, Watford ended with a well-deserved point.

The Lady Hornets play their third game of the week on Sunday afternoon (April 23) when they entertain Sheffield FC Ladies at Kings Langley (2pm kick-off).
