Notts County Ladies 0 - 0 Liverpool Ladies

Joe Jones

Notts County Ladies remain top of the FA Women's Super League table after a 0-0 draw against current champions Liverpool.

The Lady Pies were on top for most of the game in terms of possession and chances and, were it for a little more incisiveness in front of goal, could have found themselves two or three goals to the good.

Chances were at a premium in the opening stages with the game largely dominated by skirmishes in midfield, although Jess Clarke produced a long-range effort that just cleared the crossbar at the quarter-hour mark.

It was not until well beyond the half-hour point that a goalkeeper was tested, Clarke showing great technique from a tight angle and unleashed a long range strike that forced Libby Stout into a smart save.

Liverpool struggled to find a cutting edge throughout the first half, although they did hit the bar through a header from Natasha Dowie, niece of former Crystal Palace manager Iain.


The second half was also a cagey affair with few concrete chances, the consequence of two very evenly matched sides.

In the 65th minute, Dunia Susi had a great chance when she ran clean through after Gemma Bonner was forced into a mistake by Desiree Scott.

Susi powered into the box, but with just Stout to beat, dragged her shot just past the upright.

Clarke then marauded into the box midway through the second half, but her shot was deflected away by Bonner.

Susi then did her best once again to draw first blood when she powered her way into the box after chasing a long ball, but her shot cleared the bar.

The final whistle eventually blew with both sides sharing the spoils - Notts will perhaps feel aggrieved at not being able to take more from the game, but will be happy that they're still in pole position at the top of the WSL table.
