Doncaster have been all-but relegated from Women's Super League One after a 13th defeat in a row against Liverpool.

Rhiannon Roberts headed home Emily Simpkins' free-kick to put Rovers ahead but Caroline Weir curled in to level.

A long-range Weir strike put Liverpool in front on the stroke of half-time, and Natasha Harding found the top corner to secure victory.

Rovers are nine points from safety with three games left while Liverpool are up to fourth, moving above Birmingham.
