Wolverhampton Wanderers require two victories from their last three games in order to secure the title and they moved closer to their target with a 2-1 victory over Loughborough Foxes. Jen Anslow gave them the lead with a 35-yard strike in first half injury time and Jamillah Palmer added a second after the break, before Vicky Brackenbury grabbed a late consolation from the penalty spot for the Foxes.
