Leeds Utd took over the leadership of the National Division as they completed their season with a 2-0 victory over Cardiff City.
The first half ended goalless but two second half goals from in-form striker Carey Huegett ended the campaign on a winning note for Leeds and they must now wait and see if Sunderland pick up the win they require from their final game - also against Cardiff - to deny them their first ever league title.
However for Cardiff, the result drops them into the bottom two and they need to win one of their two remaining games to guarantee their survival. They also lost Welsh international Amie Lea who was sent off following a tackle on Leeds' Billie Murphy, who was taken to hospital with a suspected broken leg but those fears thankfully proved to be unfounded.
Meanwhile Sunderland took their injury-hit squad to Aston Villa for the second week in a row following their win in the Premier League Cup seven days earlier. This time the teams produced another closely fought encounter and could not be separated on the day. Villa went closest when Carly Davies hit the bar late on whilst Sunderland also had chances to take the points.
After having been bottom of the table for the majority of the season, Watford are very close to securing their National Division status as they won 2-1 away to Nottingham Forest, who now have to win their final game to stand any chance of staying up. Things started well for Forest as Suzanne Davies gave them a first half lead but after the break, Sarah Wiltshire levelled the scores from a 25-yard free kick and then Megan Wynne set up Irene Martin Garcia to slot home the winning goal and keep her side's 'Great Escape' on course.
