Cardiff City need to avoid defeat in their final match of the season in order to achieve promotion to the National Division.
The South Wales side took themselves to within the brink of going up with a 3-0 victory over Colchester Utd. All of the damage was done in the first half, in-form striker Natasha Harding netting twice within a minute and Nicola Cousins added the third just after the half hour.
West Ham Utd currently sit in second place on goal difference but they have completed their matches following a 1-1 draw away to Brighton & Hove Albion. Becky Merritt was on target for the Hammers but a cross deflected in off the unfortunate Tracey Duxbury to earn Brighton a share of the spoils and matters are now out of West Ham's hands.
Cardiff play their last match against Keynsham Town this Sunday and a point will guarantee them a top two place. Keynsham meanwhile can still go up but have to win by a six-goal margin in order to do so, whilst a Keynsham victory by a lesser margin will mean that West Ham will be promoted. If Cardiff are to make it, it would be a great achievement after losing their first three league matches, before winning 10 of their next 14 games.
Portsmouth moved back into fourth place with a 4-2 win against Yeovil Town, for whom it was a sad day as they were relegated after just one season in the league. Yeovil did take a two-goal lead in the first half through Terri Trowbridge and Laura Bray but Kirsty McGee pulled one back for Pompey on the stroke of half time. After the break, Rosie Bidder levelled the scores before former Yeovil striker Lindsey Roe netted twice to seal her old club's fate.
