Doncaster Rovers Belles have the definition of a must-win game this weekend.

They must beat Yeovil Town Ladies on Sunday, in their final home game of the season, to maintain any hope of winning FAWSL2.

Gordon Staniforth’s side are currently in second place, five points adrift of league leaders Sunderland.

But Belles do have a game in hand on the Lady Black Cats and their goal difference is currently three goals superior to their title rivals.

Victory for the Belles on Sunday would take the FAWSL2 title race down to the final day of the season, while anything less than three points for Doncaster would hand the title to Sunderland.

Staniforth said: “It will be a tough test against a promising Yeovil team.

“They put up a brave fight away and it was only two goals from captain Leandra Little from set pieces that separated the sides.

“We need to continue our excellent form on a brilliant playing surface at Keepmoat to finish the season and go into the last match with a chance of winning the league.”

Belles, who have won their last five games, end their season at bottom of the table London Bees next Sunday. Sunderland’s final game is at Millwall Lionesses.

Tickets for tomorrow’s game are available from the Keepmoat Stadium ticket office priced £6 adults and £3 concessions. Under 10s will be admitted free.
