Doncaster Rovers Belles must better Reading’s result to win the FAWSL2 title this weekend.
Belles welcome Millwall Lionesses to the Keepmoat Stadium on Sunday (2pm) for the final league game of a memorable season that has already seen them guarantee an automatic promotion spot.
But to pip the Royals to the league title they will now need a favour from elsewhere after the Berkshire club held their nerve to win 2-0 at Everton last weekend.
Belles go into the final round of fixtures level on points with Reading but with a goal difference inferior by seven.
Reading therefore travel to Aston Villa knowing that victory will seal the title - barring a remarkable goal swing.
Doncaster’s promotion to FAWSL1 is subject to meeting FA criteria.
Last week Belles unveiled ambitious plans for a new training base in Misson and revealed that they will offer approximately ten players full-time contracts for the first time in their history next year.
