Belles and Chelsea finish level
 Women's Football News 28 Apr 2013
Doncaster Rovers Belles 1 (Sigsworth 4) Chelsea 1 (Vidarsdottir 45)
Doncaster Rovers Belles bounced back from their disappointing 4-0 defeat to Chelsea eight days earlier to record a 1-1 draw against the same opponents in the Continental Cup. 
With only four minutes on the clock, the Belles took the lead when a lobbed pass from Millie Bright found Jess Sigsworth who advanced on goal and saw her first effort blocked before firing in the rebound.
Doncaster had a fantastic opportunity to extend their lead on 15 minutes when Sigsworth was brought down just outside the area. Beth England took the resulting free kick but her curled effort was straight at Shannon Lynn in the Chelsea goal.
Persistence from Bright created an opening for Sigsworth, but her shot from an angle was tame and went well wide. The front pairing of Bright and Sigsworth were linking well and they combined to create an opportunity for Bright who battled her way past two defenders before attempting a low drive which flashed past the post.
In response to their defeat last weekend, Belles manager John Buckley gave starts to young defenders Ashleigh Mills and Jemma Purfield. The pair, only sixteen years old, performed admirably against far more experienced opponents, Purfield making two crucial tackles to prevent first Sofia Jakobsson and then Eniola Aluko from breaking through the back line.
Doncaster were inches away from doubling their lead and it was Sigsworth again who went close. The striker was forced wide but squeezed in a shot which hit the top of the bar.
The home side had had the better of things until this point but Chelsea forced an equaliser a minute before half time. Olina Vidarsdottir was on hand to score her first goal for the club after Doncaster were unable to defend a corner.
In the second half, Chelsea came much more into the game as an attacking force. A run from Helen Bleazard resulted in Nicola Hobbs claiming her cross, before Jakobsson held the ball up well before laying off to Dunia Susi whose shot flew over.
Chances were a lot fewer after the break although Bright and Sigsworth still looked lively, Sigsworth shooting over the bar and having another effort saved by Lynn.
The final opportunity of the match went the way of Chelsea but Jakobsson could not get her volley on target and both teams had to settle for a point apiece. 
Doncaster Rovers Belles: Nicola Hobbs, Ashleigh Mills, Jemma Purfield (sub Victoria Williams 69mins), Leandra Little, Lyndsey Cunningham, Naomi Chadwick (sub Cheryl Foster 65mins), Jess Sigsworth, Emma Thomson, Millie Bright, Kasia Lipka, Beth England (sub Lucy Sowerby 84mins). Subs not used: Nicola Emery, Emma Higgins.

Chelsea: Shannon Lynn, Dunia Susi, Sophie Ingle, Laura Coombs, Kylie Davies, Olina Vidarsdottir, Helen Bleazard (sub Danielle Buet 62mins), Ester Dos Santos (sub Helen Ward 62mins), Eniola Aluko (sub Kate Longhurst 74mins), Edda Gardarsdottir, Sofia Jakobsson.
