Sunderland took a step closer towards the National Division title with a hard fought 1-0 victory over Leeds Utd.
The win takes the Wearsiders five points clear and they need five more points from their last three games in order to secure the title. The result has guaranteed Sunderland a top two place, as only Nottingham Forest can now catch them, and has ended Leeds' chances of winning the league.
The game was an open one but the first half saw few clear cut chances at either end. Kelly McDougall struck the bar for Sunderland midway through the second half but the deadlock was broken in the 72nd minute when Abby Holmes broke down the right before setting up Demi Stokes who calmly finished. Rachel Furness nearly added a second when her shot hit the bar but Sunderland saw the game out for an important three points.
The two teams who started the day at the foot of the table met in the other game and it was Millwall Lionesses who emerged as 2-1 winners over Barnet. Millwall took the lead just before the half hour through Kate Longhurst but Barnet - four days before their Premier League Cup Final date - equalised ten minutes into the second half with a goal from Stacey Sowden. Four minutes later, Longhurst netted her eighth league goal of the season to give Millwall a win which lifts them out of the bottom two, at the expense of Watford.
