It's as you were at the top of the National Division with Arsenal and Everton both winning once more to take the title race towards its thrilling conclusion.
Arsenal made sure of preserving their lead of eight points as they defeated Bristol Academy 3-0. Kim Little netted a tenth minute penalty and Katie Chapman scored from a long range free kick on the stroke of half time. Suzanne Grant made the game safe, again from the penalty spot with five minutes remaining.
Everton meanwhile got back to winning ways with a 1-0 success away to Watford. Central defender Fern Whelan headed in the only goal of the game for the Toffees, just after the hour mark to keep matters in her side's hands.
Chelsea have all but made sure of a third place finish after completing the double over Doncaster Rovers Belles within seven days. Emma Whitter, recently signed from Millwall Lionesses, grabbed the only goal of the game for the Blues in first half injury time.
Birmingham City hold on to fourth place after they battled out a 1-1 draw with Blackburn Rovers, who are now safe from any relegation trouble. Rhianda Roberts had given Blackburn a first half lead with a Karen Burke own goal earning the Blues a share of the spoils.
A late goal means that Nottingham Forest will be playing top flight football again next season, their 1-0 win over Leeds Carnegie takes them out of the bottom two for the first time this season and ensures their safety. The all-important goal for Forest came from Andi Bell with eight minutes remaining.
However it will be Liverpool who are relegated after they drew 2-2 with WFC Fulham who are to finish alongside them in the bottom two. Gemma Fraser put Fulham ahead on the hour with Kelly Jones equalising, Charmaine Benham restored Fulham's lead and although Jones struck again in the dying minutes, the point was not enough to give the Reds any hope of beating the drop.
