Newly crowned SWPL 2 Champions Aberdeen are ten points ahead at the top of the table, with one match left to play, after they defeated Glasgow Women 8-1 on Thursday night.
However it is still not yet known who will join the Dons in the top flight next season, with three teams vying to take the runners-up spot when the final round of fixtures is played on Sunday.
After having dominated the table throughout the truncated season, Aberdeen sewed up the title on Sunday with a 5-2 victory away to fellow challengers Dundee Utd. Doubles from Eva Thomson and Francesca Ogilvie, along with a further goal from Bayley Hutchison, gave the Dons the result they required whilst United's replies came from Holly Napier and Jade McLaren.
Aberdeen then celebrated their success in style in midweek, with Glasgow Women their unfortunate opponents on the night. Eilidh Shore led the scoring with a hat-trick and there were braces from Bailley Collins and Bayley Hutchison, with captain Kelly Forrest joining them on the scoresheet.
Hamilton Academical's promotion hopes were put on hold as they shared a 1-1 draw with Boroughmuir Thistle. A victory would have seen the Accies all but certain of taking second place but after Amy Anderson had given them the perfect start with a fourth minute opener, Boroughmuir hit back to earn a share of the spoils when Beth MacLeod equalised ahead of half time.
Things remain in Hamilton's hands though and a win in their final match will see them confirmed as promoted. Dundee Utd are fourth, two points behind the Accies, following their defeat to Aberdeen whilst Partick Thistle have narrowed the gap to a single point and have gone third after running out 5-0 winners over Queen's Park. Jade Gallon, Cheryl McCulloch, Cheryl Hogg, Cara McBrearty and Clare Docherty all netted a goal apiece to keep Thistle's promotion chances alive; their final match against this season will be against Dundee Utd.
Kilmarnock, who will be Hamilton's final opponents, will go into the match in good form after beating St Johnstone 2-1. After a goalless first half, Ellie Cowie put St Johnstone in front within one minute of the restart but Killie hit back to take the points, thanks to Shelley Campbell and Abby Robinson.
Stirling University meanwhile picked up their second win of the season, 2-1 against Glasgow Women. Rosie McQuillan gave Glasgow the lead just before half time but goals in a three minute spell after the break from Emma Lyons and Ellie Simpson turned the match around in Stirling's favour.
