The action in the FA WSL was confined to two matches on Wednesday night and Birmingham City kept their hopes of a top three place alive by winning 3-1 at Everton.
The Toffees got off to a great start through a fine finish from Inessa Kaagman but just two minutes later, Hayley Ladd volleyed in an equaliser after a corner was half cleared. Another corner then led to the Blues going in front, Ellen White bundling home from close range. The outcome was decided in three second half minutes, firstly when Kaagman's penalty was saved by Hannah Hampton and moments later, Birmingham scored from a corner for the third time, White heading in her second on the night.
Yeovil Town saw their relegation from the top flight confirmed as they were beaten 5-0 by Reading FC Women, perhaps catching the backlash from the Royals' penalty shootout defeat in the SSE Women's FA Cup semi finals three days earlier.
Both sides traded chances during the opening stages but it was Reading who went ahead just after the half hour through a spectacular strike from Fara Williams from the edge of the area. After the break, they doubled their lead when Lauren Bruton finished off a good move and Millie Farrow made it three from Gemma Davison's pass. Bruton and Farrow then completed their doubles to round off a convincing win for Reading and take themselves to within one point of fifth placed Bristol City.
