Ellie Bailes opens the scoring for Charlton

Ellie Bailes had capitalised on a mistake in the Wildcats’ back-line to edge the hosts ahead, but a brace from Zoe Ness turned the game on its head before the interval.

Charlotte Gurr popped up five minutes from time to ensure the game ended all-square.

Gurr said: “I kept on making those late runs and I was grateful that one came in and I got my head on it before the goalie got there.

“In the context of things, that’s an important point at the end of the day. It would have been really disappointing if they had got the three points off us at home. Durham are a very good team, we didn’t underestimate them at all.”
