Liverpool’s clash with Bristol will be the focus of attention this weekend as The FA Women’s Super League draws to a thrilling finale.
Leaders Liverpool, who have netted 44 times in a record-breaking season, need just a point to secure the crown.
A win or a draw would cap a remarkable turnaround for Matt Beard's side, who claimed just two wins over the course of the previous two FA WSL seasons and finished bottom on both occasions.
But the Reds will have to fend off a Bristol side who have also made remarkable strides of their own this term.
In-form Bristol are poised for a third straight season of League progress having finished fifth and fourth in the first two WSL campaigns.
Mark Sampson's side, propelled by the goals of Spanish strike duo Natalia Pablos and Laura Del Rio, travel to the north-west on the back of just one defeat in their last nine outings.
That defeat, incidentally, came at home to Liverpool, who triumphed by the odd goal in seven thanks to captain Gemma Bonner's late strike.
Meanwhile, Arsenal, whose reign as champions will come to an end this weekend, are assured of a third-place finish ahead of their trip to Everton.
Despite the fact her side will have little else apart from pride to play for, Gunners’ boss Shelley Kerr will ensure her players try to impress ahead of their Continental Cup Final clash against Lincoln Ladies next week.
Meanwhile, the Toffees, who are currently in fourth place with 15 points, need to match or better Birmingham's result at Doncaster to finish ahead of the Midlands side.
If they do so, it will be the first time they have finished ahead of David Parker's side, having trailed the Midlanders by one place in each of the last two campaigns.
Chelsea boss Emma Hayes has already admitted that this season is a transitional one, but nonetheless, she'll be hoping her side bow out with a win against Lincoln at home.
A single point against Rick Passmoor's outfit will allow the Blues to match their sixth-place finish of the last two seasons. A win for Lincoln, however, would see the Lady Imps claim sixth place at Chelsea's expense.
And Donny Belles will be looking to sign off from the top flight with a strong display. A win at home at Everton would allow them to leapfrog Lincoln if the Imps fail to secure all three points at Wheatsheaf Park.
