Doncaster Rovers Belles need to win one of their remaining two games in order to clinch the WSL 2 title, moving themselves closer with a 2-1 win away to Sheffield FC.
The home side went into the match in great form and took the lead after 28 minutes through Hannah Cain but early in the second half, Rebecca Rayner levelled the scores and Emily Simpkins scored a decisive second to give the Belles a hard earned victory and maintain their lead of four points.
Brighton & Hove Albion are now the only team which can still catch Doncaster, moving themselves into second place on Sunday with a 4-1 victory over Watford. Simon Petkova did give Watford the lead but Danielle Buet equalised from the penalty spot two minutes later, with Ini Umotong and Bronwen Thomas adding further goals ahead of the break and Kirsty Barton crowning the win with the fourth.
The two teams met again on Wednesday night and the Seagulls won again, this time recording a 1-0 success. Aileen Whelan scored the only goal of the game to keep Brighton's title hopes alive, as well as putting them on the verge of securing a top two place, but they were also grateful to goalkeeper Lucy Gillett who saved a Helen Ward penalty with ten minutes remaining.
Millwall Lionesses saw their title chances bite the dust on Sunday as they were beaten 3-0 by Sheffield FC. Melissa Johnson and Niamh Cashin both netted for fifth placed Sheffield inside the opening fifteen minutes and Chloe Dixon added the third to secure a fourth straight win, prior to their midweek meeting with Doncaster Rovers Belles.
Durham Women are virtually assured of a top four place following their 3-0 midweek victory over Aston Villa. Beth Hepple marked her 100th appearance for the Wildcats by giving them a first half lead from the penalty spot. Zoe Ness added a second midway through the second half and substitute Jordan Atkinson rounded off the win by scoring four minutes from time.
