Coventry City have matters in their own hands going into the final day of the season in the Southern Division title race after they defeated leaders Gillingham 3-0.
Gillingham went into the game needing a win in order to be confirmed as Champions and started the game well but it was Coventry who took the lead just after the half hour when Nikki Miles' pass was collected by Helen Dermody who fired home. Barely a minute later, Dermody scored her second after being put through on goal by Rebecca Anderson. Sue Wood made a good save from Emma Tune as Gillingham tried to find a way back into the game after the break but with six minutes left, Maz Gauntlett put the result beyond doubt when she scored the third goal.
Coventry therefore require a victory on Sunday away to Portsmouth if they are to pip Gillingham to the title.
Cardiff City's title chances are over though, following their 2-1 defeat away to Lewes who gave a winning send off to manager Jacquie Agnew, who is stepping down after twelve years at the helm. Kirstie Spice netted the only goal of the first half for Lewes with Charlotte Bennett adding a second after the break. Zoe Atkins pulled one back for Cardiff in injury time but they will have to settle for third place at best whilst Lewes end the season with a six match unbeaten run.
Portsmouth will approach this Sunday's crunch meeting with Coventry in good form after running out 6-2 winners over West Ham Utd. Pompey roared into a two-goal lead inside the opening six minutes through Sarah Kempson and Lucy Quinn, who added a second just before the half hour. Nadine Bazan and Gemma Hillier both scored in quick succession to put Portsmouth five ahead by half time. Gemma Simmonds netted the sixth during the second half before Sarah McCrea grabbed two consolation goals for the Hammers late on.
