Aston Villa have gone top of the Northern Division for the first time this season after they defeated Rochdale 4-1.
Erin Vaughan scored twice, with Carly Davies and Shona Franklin adding the others while Rochdale replied through Sarah Buffel. Villa now need to win their final match of the season against Leeds City Vixens in order to win the title and promotion.
Coventry City move into second place after they defeated Preston North End 3-0. Kirsty Robson, Leanne McKenna and Danni Saulter scored the goals which mean that the Sky Blues will be promoted if they beat Derby County in their final game.
Long time leaders Manchester City are now back in third place, with Leicester City looking destined to finish fourth following their 6-0 victory over Leeds City Vixens. The Foxes went ahead after two minutes when Katie Lowder slammed home a Natasha Meade corner and Meade was the provider again when Courtney Sweetman-Kirk slotted home the second . The Vixens went close through Stacey Daniel and Orla Haslam hit the Foxes post with a fine header but Sammy Morris headed home a Lowder corner on 28 minutes and Vicky Gallagher added the fourth shortly before half time. Lowder made it five, nine minutes after the restart, from a Chloe Jones pass and she rounded off a splendid hat-trick on 70 minutes with a fine header from a Lauren Impey free kick.
At the other end of the table, Newcastle Utd took an enormous stride towards survival with a 3-0 success at Curzon Ashton which lifted them out of the bottom two. Beth Gardener scored twice and Nichol Havery the other to ensure that the Magpies need to avoid defeat in their final match against Preston North End whilst Curzon will be hoping for the same result in order to not be automatically relegated.
