Liverpool Ladies 1 (0) v Doncaster Belles 1 (0)
Liverpool finally ended their scoring drought but were denied an elusive first win by Aine O'Gorman's late strike for Doncaster.
Nicki Harding looked like she had given the Reds a priceless first three points, but, for the third time this season, Robbie Johnson's team let a lead slip inside the final ten minutes.
Johnson made three changes to his starting eleven after Sunday's defeat to Bristol, with Beth Bailey and Chloe Jones making their first Liverpool starts in place of Michelle Evans and the suspended Nicky Twohig, and Harding coming in for Gemma Watson.
The Reds were desperate to end their seven game goal drought, and it was the Belles’ goal that was under the most threat in the early stages.
Katie Brusell, Chloe Jones, and Harding all came close within the opening minutes, but none were able to significantly trouble visiting keeper Mary Earps.
Donny's first chance came after ten minutes, and they were within inches of taking the lead when Vicky Exley just failed to connect with Kylla Sjoman's in-swinging free kick at the back post.
Kelly Jones was then next to test Earps, before her twin sister saved the Reds at the other end.
Sjoman's corner found the head of Exley and the former England midfielder's effort beat Danielle Gibbons before Vicky Jones cleared the ball from under her own crossbar.
Just after the half hour, Liverpool threatened again after great link-up play between Harding and Ruesha Littlejohn down the right flank. A one-two found Littlejohn in space on the edge of the area, but her shot curled agonisingly wide of the far post.
Harding provided another chance minutes after, skipping past two defenders before pulling the ball back to Brusell, who could only slice her effort wide.
Both keepers were then tested in the closing minutes of the half - Gibbons gathered Kasia Lipka's shot before a sprawling Earps got a hand to Harding's effort to ensure the half ended goalless.
Half Time: Liverpool 0-0 Doncaster
Two minutes into the second half, the home side broke the deadlock. Sam Chappell's cross from the right was touched on by Harding, and when Earps could only parry, harding was there to turn home the rebound.
The same player could have doubled the lead soon after. Brusell made progress down the left before cutting the ball back to Kelly Jones, who sliced her shot into Harding's path. However, the midfielder couldn't keep her first time shot down and the ball flew over the bar.
By now Liverpool were creating chances at a more prolific rate than they have done previously this season, and Littlejohn was next to go close.
Kelly Jones dispossessed Doncaster's Maria Karlsson on the halfway line before charging forward and feeding the Scottish striker who curled her shot wide.
With twenty minutes left, Johnson made a triple substitution, bringing Cheryl Foster, Gemma Watson and Michelle Evans on for Chloe Jones, Littlejohn and Harding, and two of the subs almost combined to double the lead immediately.
Foster fed Evans with a pinpoint pass, and although the midfielder managed to lift her shot over the onrushing Earps, she couldn't hit to target and the ball dribbled wide.
Liverpool were left to rue that chance on 81 minutes, when O'Gorman drilled home an angled drive to level the scores.
In an end-to-end final ten minutes, both sides could have clinched the points with Gibbons saving from Belles substitute Scott and Brusell going close at the other end.
However, the best chance fell to Exley. The midfielder was put clean through by Hamilton's pass, but could only scuff her shot, enabling Gibbons to block.
Liverpool remain winless going into the final three games of the WSL season, starting with a tough trip to Chelsea on Sunday.
