Late goal moves Arsenal closer
 Women's Football FA WSL news - 4 Apr 2019
 
Arsenal require two more wins to land their first FA WSL title for seven years after a late goal brought them a crucial 1-0 victory away to Birmingham City.
 
The Gunners started the first half strongly with Hannah Hampton making a fine save from Vivianne Miedema's header and a goalmouth scramble which saw Dominique Bloodworth's effort deflected onto the bar. Birmingham came into the game with Ellen White twice going close and Chloe Arthur heading inches wide but with eleven minutes remaining, Katie McCabe cut in from out wide to plant a left foot shot past Hampton to score a precious goal which keeps her side at the top of the table.
 
Manchester City stay one point behind in second place as they also left it late in their 2-1 win against Liverpool. Claire Emslie gave them the lead just before the half hour and shortly afterwards, both Steph Houghton and Nikita Parris hit the woodwork as they sought a second. After the break, Liverpool came into the game more and after a handball offence in the area, Courtney Sweetman-Kirk slotted home the equaliser from the penalty spot. The Reds looked to be on their way towards one of their best results of the season but, deep into injury time, their hearts were broken when Jennifer Beattie headed in a Caroline Weir free kick to keep City's title chances alive.
 
Chelsea shared the points for the sixth time this season when they drew 1-1 with West Ham Utd. Beth England hit the post on the half hour and a period of Chelsea pressure was rewarded two minutes before half time, when England headed them in front. The Hammers hit back after the break and shortly after Carly Telford had produced a good save to deny Jane Ross, they produced an equaliser when a Leanne Kiernan picked out Gilly Flaherty at the far post to head in against her former club.
 
Reading FC Women increased their chances of a top half finish with a 1-0 win away to fifth placed Bristol City. The first half was goalless but two minutes after the restart, a foul on Lauren Bruton saw a penalty awarded for the Royals but Fara Williams' kick was saved by Sophie Baggaley. A long ball from Molly Bartrip released Brooke Chaplen on goal and the striker kept her cool to score the only goal of the game and move her team up the table.
 
It has been something of a traumatic week for Yeovil Town, which has included a ten point deduction, but it ended on a happy note as they won 1-0 against Everton, to complete a double over the Toffees. Yeovil needed to survive a spell of pressure early in the second half, with former Everton keeper Megan Walsh making saves from Gabby George and Megan Finnigan, before a cross-cum-shot by full back Megan Alexander dipped over Kirstie Levell for the only goal of the game, twelve minutes from time.
