Middlesbrough 2-2 Leeds United
Leeds United came from 2-0 down to earn a share of the spoils against Middlesbrough yesterday with both of their goals in the final 15 minutes.
Boro went ahead after 31 minutes when Jess Mett’s ball in found Jess Dawson who fired home at the second attempt. They doubled their advantage just before the break when Armani Maxwell’s pressure forced a weak backpass which she managed to get onto and hit a first-time effort into the net.
However, Leeds hit back to claim a point with two goals in a four-minute spell. First, thanks to a cross-shot that flew in, and the leveller came when a long through ball was met with an excellent finish.
