Liverpool close in on second
 Women's Football FA Women's Championship News - 30 Apr 2021
 
With top and bottom places having been decided in the FA Women's Championship the previous week, the main attention was focused on the battle to finish as runners-up, which is now down to two teams.
 
Durham Women will go into Sunday's final round of matches with matters still in their own hands, despite going down to a 2-1 defeat at the hands of in-form Charlton Athletic. Beth Lumsden gave Charlton the lead midway through the first half and Jess King secured a third straight win for the Addicks with twenty minutes remaining, despite Lauren Briggs scoring a late consolation for the Wildcats. Durham will still take the runners-up spot if they win at home to Coventry Utd this weekend.
 
The two other teams which had been in the running for second place met each other, and it was Liverpool who kept their hopes alive by winning an incident-packed match 1-0 away to Sheffield Utd. The Blades could have taken a first half lead but Katie Wilkinson's penalty hit the post, and six minutes later Amalie Thestrup put Liverpool in front. The Reds themselves had a penalty of their own after the break but Kirsty Linnett's kick was well saved by Fran Kitching. That was not the end of the penalty drama though as a third spot kick was awarded late on, this time to the Blades, and for the third time, it could not be converted as Rylee Foster saved from Jade Pennock to give all three points to Liverpool, who play host to London City Lionesses on Sunday.
 
Newly crowned Champions Leicester City travelled to the South Coast to play Lewes and were beaten for only the second time this season. The only goal of the game came in the 20th minute when, after Lucy Ashworth-Clifford was brought down in the area, Ini Umotong stepped up to score a goal which means that the Rookettes will finish in a highly creditable fifth place this season.
 
Coventry Utd continue to finish the season well and they notched up their fifth victory, 5-2 against Crystal Palace. Katy Morris gave Coventry a fourth minute lead and after Cherelle Khassal had levelled the scores for Palace, Helen Dermody put them back in front before half time. Coral Haines equalised once more, from the penalty spot, after the break but Morris gave Coventry the lead for a third time and they went on to seal the points with further goals from Dermody and Amy Wathan.
 
London Bees made sure of finishing what has been a disappointing season on a high note, beating Blackburn Rovers 3-2. Maria Edwards opened the scoring for Rovers after sixteen minutes but goals either side of half time from Nicola Gibson and Melissa Filis turned matters around for the Bees. Saffron Jordan levelled matters once more but the Bees were to have the final say, Bonnie Horwood scoring the winner with seventeen minutes remaining.
