The battle to finish in second place in the Northern Division will go to the final matches of the season after the two contenders both recorded victories on Sunday.
Blackburn Rovers hold on to second following their 2-0 win away to Newcastle Utd. Rovers took the lead on the stroke of half time when Jade Boulton headed in a Steph Marsh cross and Nicky Twohig wrapped up the points midway through the second half when she scored from a corner.
Nottingham Forest meanwhile benefitted from a late, late strike when beating Leicester City 2-1 to remain one point behind Blackburn. Amber Hughes grabbed the winning goal for Forest in injury time to add to Kelly Finley's earlier strike.
The runners-up spot will be decided this week as Forest play local rivals Derby County on Wednesday evening, with Blackburn taking on Sporting Club Albion at Ewood Park 24 hours later.
Newly crowned Southern Division Champions Reading FC Women's final match of the season was marred when a serious injury caused their game with West Ham Utd to be abandoned.
Reading were leading 3-2 when, with nine minutes left, West Ham goalkeeper Toni-Anne Wayne was taken to hospital after colliding heavily with a post. The former England keeper sustained a couple of cracked ribs and bruising and play did not carry on after the accident, but the result is set to stand.
