Doncaster Rovers Belles 0 Manchester City 4 (Ross 1, Christiansen 15, Bronze 63, Corboz 90)
Manchester City now have a huge ten point advantage at the top of FA WSL 1 following a four-goal blast at the Keepmoat Stadium.
City's first goal came just moments after kick off when Leandra Little's ball from the back worked its way to Georgia Stanway, before Ross headed home the winger's pinpoint cross.
The Belles responded well but fell further behind soon after when Steph Houghton's header inside the box found midfielder Izzy Christiansen who was able to swivel and shoot beyond Nicola Hobbs.
The home side did create chances; Christie Murray struck the post with a superb lofted effort before Carla Humphrey smashed the rebound over.
However another corner sealed the Belles' demise just after the hour when Lucy Bronze found herself on the end of Toni Duggan's cross, before Daphne Corboz rounded off proceedings with an excellent left footed effort as the game moved into stoppage time.
The result means that Manchester City currently need three wins from their final four games to be crowned as Champions.
