Notts County fought back to beat Sunderland and move up to sixth in Women's Super League One with their first league victory since 26 June.

Sunderland took the lead on the stroke of half-time when Tori Williams fired in after Lucy Staniforth's free-kick fell to her in Notts' penalty area.

After half-time, Rachel Williams headed in Jo Potter's corner to equalise.

Fern Whelan hit the post for the hosts, before Jess Clarke headed the ball over the goalkeeper to give Notts the lead.

Sunderland remain eighth, nine points above bottom club Doncaster Rovers Belles, who have five matches remaining.
