Ross goal saves City's unbeaten record

Written by
Liverpool’s Rosie White took just four minutes to score against Manchester City

Jane Ross’ second-half equaliser ensured Women’s Super League One leaders Manchester City stay unbeaten as they drew with Liverpool.

The Scottish striker scored from close range as City stretched their lead over second-placed Chelsea to five points.

Rosie White silenced the home crowd in the fourth minute when she beat two defenders to fire past Karen Bardsley.

That was the first time the City keeper had been beaten in the league this season, but her side responded well.

City’s Toni Duggan and Daphne Corboz were both inches away from converting Kosovare Asllani’s low cross.

The hosts’ second-half pressure paid off when Ross tapped home from a driven Nikita Parris cross.

Reds keeper Siobhan Chamberlain pulled off the save of the game to keep out Jill Scott’s header before a flurry of chances in injury time.

The home side had a penalty appeal turned down, before Liverpool’s Niamh Charles was denied by Bardsley and then Ross was thwarted by Chamberlain.

A second successive draw for Liverpool, the 2014 champions, keeps them in fifth place.
