Doncaster Rovers Belles and Reading FC Women have both edged a step closer to promotion to Women's Super League One.

The top two in WSL 2 drew 2-2 after a late equaliser from second-placed Reading's Bianca Bragg on Saturday.

Both their causes were then helped when fourth-placed Everton were denied by Olivia Fergusson's last-gasp header for Aston Villa in a 1-1 draw on Sunday.

However, third-placed Yeovil won 1-0 at Durham and are now six points behind Reading, with four matches remaining.

Elsewhere, Oxford United moved up to fifth with a 3-2 win at Millwall Lionesses and 11th-placed London Bees thrashed bottom-club Watford 4-0.
