Reading FC Women 2 (Ward 38, Bragg 88) Doncaster Rovers Belles 2 (Little 22, England 39)
A late equaliser from Bianca Bragg earned Reading a share of the spoils in the WSL 2 top of the table clash, keeping them two points behind leaders Doncaster Rovers Belles.
Both teams remain on course for promotion although the result will keep alive the interest of chasing sides Yeovil Town and Everton.
Belles captain Leandra Little powered a header past Grace Moloney in the Reading goal from Sue Smith's free kick midway through the first half but Reading equalised ten minutes before half time, with Ward nodding in Nikki Watts' right wing cross after good work from Bragg.
Doncaster regained the lead three minutes later with England also using her head to convert Kasia Lipka's cross.
Five minutes into the second half Bragg shot just wide of the left hand upright following good work from Rebecca Jane on the right wing.
But Bragg was to make amends in the final minute when she slotted in following good work from substitute Nia Jones on the right.
