Liverpool 1 (Harding 47) Doncaster Rovers Belles 0
Liverpool stretched their unbeaten run in the league to seven matches and moved to within one point of third place after a powerful strike from Natasha Harding gave them victory over Doncaster Rovers Belles, whose search for points continues.
The hosts dominated the majority of an entertaining first half at the Select Security Stadium with Nicola Hobbs performing wonders between the posts to ensure the visitors remained level.
Hobbs first denied Shanice van de Sanden before athletically tipping over a headed effort from Reds captain Gemma Bonner, who seconds later saw another chance cleared off the line.
The Belles remained a threat on the break and it was Siobhan Chamberlain who was forced into making the save of the game when she dived down low to her right to keep out Katrin Omarsdottir's shot.
After a goalless first half, it was Harding who broke the deadlock in spectacular style when she picked up a loose ball outside the Belles' area before rifling a fine shot beyond the previously unbeatable Hobbs.
Although the visitors improved after going behind, chances were at a premium as the Reds secured a welcome three points to make it seven league games unbeaten.
