MK Dons Ladies put an end to their losing run after a 1-1 draw with Chichester City Ladies on Sunday afternoon.
John Dyer’s side, who came into the game having lost two on the bounce, made the long journey to West Sussex to take on a Chichester outfit that had rarely been outside of the top three all season.
The Dons, though, controlled proceedings early on, with new signing Claire Hollingsworth impressing on her debut at the heart of the Dons defence alongside Tammy Scrivens.
It was no surprise, then, when the visitors took the lead just before half-time courtesy of Charley Wright, who, after a strong run into the box finished with a low drive into the corner of the net.
After the re-start, Chichester City began to show why they are challenging for the title this season with a dominant display and their equaliser deservedly came mid-way through the second period.
Despite the hosts dominance, the Dons hung on for the remainder of the game to pick up a valuable point which sees them close the gap on third to just six points, which three games left to go.
Afterwards, manager Dyer said: “Six months ago we would have been happy with a draw away from home against a top side like that but it feels like we’ve lost the game in the changing rooms at the moment.
“It just shows, then, that we’ve turned a corner and have raised our standards to new levels.”
