Blues keep chances alive
 Women's Football News 23 Sep 2012
 
Doncaster Rovers Belles 0 Birmingham City 2 (Aluko 24, Moore 55)
Birmingham City kept the FA WSL title race alive for another week after a goal in each half gave them a crucial win at the Keepmoat Stadium. 
 
The Belles' final home game of the season turned into something of a damp squib as a classy Birmingham side strolled to victory. In persistent pouring rain, Belles struggled to get any sort of grip on the game and succumbed to goals from England striker Eni Aluko and Jade Moore.
 
John Buckley's team went into the Sunday evening clash in good spirits on the back of an impressive three game unbeaten run. But the title chasing Blues, who had to win to stay in with a chance of overturning league leaders Arsenal, were in a different class for the majority of the evening.
 
While Doncaster surrendered possession too easily, the visitors appeared calm and composed on the ball.
 
Izzy Christianson had already been denied by a save from point blank range by Mary Earps and then cannoned a shot off the bar before Aluko struck in decisive fashion. The England international latched onto Jodie Taylor's through ball and rifled a shot in off the underside of the bar.
 
Belles were still in the game at a goal behind but a second ten minutes after the restart left them with a mountain to climb.
 
It was Moore who claimed the final touch after a wicked cross from the left by Kerys Harrop.
 
Belles were restricted to long range efforts all night and never really threatened the Blues' advantage.
 
Doncaster Rovers Belles: Mary Earps, Lyndsey Cunningham, Naomi Chadwick (sub Lucy Sowerby 81mins), Leandra Little, Tanya Oxtoby, Katie Holtham, Jess Sigsworth (sub Beth England 59mins), Alyssa Lagonia (sub Victoria Williams 70mins), Aine O'Gorman, Millie Bright, Kasia Lipka.
 
Birmingham City: Marie Hourihan (sub Rebecca Spencer 60mins), Chelsea Weston, Kerys Harrop, Jade Moore, Emily Westwood, Laura Bassett, Issy Christiansen, Eniola Aluko, Jodie Taylor, Karen Carney, Jo Potter (sub Emily Simkins 90mins).
