Birmingham City 1-0 Durham
The Blues cemented second place in the Championship after a 1-0 victory over Durham that saw them go four points behind leaders Bristol City with two games remaining.
After a goalless first half, City secured their fifth successive win on the hour mark thanks to Tara Bourne who smashed home after Durham keeper Naoisha McAloon repelled a header that fell invitingly for her to smash home.
Birmingham travel to the North-East on Sunday to face Durham once more before ending the season at home to Bristol City – which, if Charlton Athletic can come to the Midlanders’ assistance this weekend, could decide which side gains promotion to the WSL for next season.
