Beth England says Doncaster Rovers Belles will give it their all against Millwall Lionesses on Sunday in order to try and cap their FA WSL 2 season with the title.

Belles have already secured promotion and are currently second, level on points with Reading but seven goals worse off with one game to go.

The Royals face a trip to Aston Villa and if both title-chasing sides win, the destination of the 2015 crown will be decided on goal difference.

Doncaster had one hand on the trophy before a damaging 3-3 draw against Everton at the beginning of September put them on the back foot.

And though England accepts the Belles need a goal glut at the Keepmoat Stadium this weekend, she is keen to make amends for that slip up against the Toffees.

“It has hit us hard that there is a chance we will lose the title after dropping points against Everton but we are just going to go all out against Millwall,” she said.

“When we played Millwall away this season, in the first half they held us pretty well – I think it was only 2-0 at half time before we went on to win 5-0.

“Millwall have taken key points off big teams this season.

“It’s not a game that you take for granted.

“Hopefully our fitness will wear them out. I don’t see why we can’t get another big win.”
