WSL 1: Notts County Ladies 2-2 Manchester City Women

Notts County celebrate Rachel Williams' equaliser
Rachel Williams' equaliser against Manchester City was her seventh goals in 18 games this season

Rachel Williams scored a last-minute equaliser to end Manchester City's seven-game winning run as Notts County Ladies battled back from 2-0 down.

City's Nikita Parris was twice denied by Carly Telford before Steph Houghton turned a loose ball home from a corner.

Parris headed against the post before the break, but Houghton eventually made it two with a 30-yard free-kick.

Jess Clarke pulled one back from the penalty spot after Lucy Bronze handled before Williams rescued a point.

She burst clear of Houghton - one of three members of England's World Cup bronze-medal winning team in the City side - and shot early to beat Karen Bardsley to complete the fightback.

The result left the Sky Blues in fourth place in Women's Super League One, but with a game in hand on the teams above them, while Notts remained three points adrift in fifth.
