Aberdeen are just two points away from clinching the SWPL 2 title following their 2-0 victory over Partick Thistle on Thursday night.
Both of the Dons' goals came during the second half, Bayley Hutchison netting a double to take her side to the verge of the title and promotion, whilst also dealing a blow to Thistle's own promotion challenge.
Hamilton Academical have had an excellent week, following up their win over Aberdeen last Sunday with a 5-1 victory against Dundee Utd which leaves their promotion prospects in their own hands. After a Rebecca McMillan own goal had put them ahead, Josephine Giard and an Amy Anderson penalty ensured they were three in front at half time. Giard netted her second just before the hour and after Neve Guthrie had pulled one back for United, Rachel Ross rounded off the scoring with nine minutes remaining.
The result moves the Accies back into second place, one point above United and Partick a further two points adrift. All three teams have two matches left to play with one promotion place now on offer, with Aberdeen all but certain to claim the first.
St Johnstone edged out Boroughmuir Thistle by the odd goal in seven to move themselves closer towards a top half finish. Morgan Steedman hit a first half hat-trick for St Johnstone before Ellie Cowie netted what proved to be the winning goal, despite a late Boroughmuir fightback with goals from Fiona Gibson and Mhari Smith, to add to Maria Torrente's earlier strike.
Kilmarnock leapfrogged Glasgow Women into sixth place by running out 4-1 winners in their meeting. Glasgow did take an early lead through Joanne Addie but Killie hit back strongly to take the points, Laura Neil bagging a brace before Lauryn Reside and Lisa Swanson added second half goals.
The teams in the bottom two positions in the table met each other and the points were shared as Queen's Park and Stirling University battled out a 1-1 draw. Mhairi Fyfe put the Spiders in front midway through the first half but after the break, Stirling levelled matters on the day with a goal from Anna Dickov.
