There’s another Barclays FA Women’s Super League relegation ‘six-pointer’ this Sunday, as Aston Villa welcome West Ham United, with only one further match day to follow.

Leicester City v Charlton Athletic (2pm)  – live on The FA Player

While Chelsea are busy in European competition, Manchester City will go top of the FA WSL should they defeat Birmingham City, who have yet to secure their top-flight status.

Aston Villa and West Ham are both bidding for points to step away from the one relegation position, sitting one and two points respectively above basement side Bristol City. With all teams down to their final two games, Manchester United visit the Robins but the Reds’ Champions League hopes will be effectively over should Arsenal win at Everton.

Reading host sixth-placed Brighton, whom they will leapfrog in the table should they take all three points.

The final round of FA Women’s Championship games are all available to watch live and free, including champions Leicester City who entertain Charlton Athletic at the King Power Stadium.

Durham need a win against Coventry United to be sure of the runners-up spot, with Liverpool lurking just a point behind the Wildcats ahead of playing London City Lionesses.

Blackburn Rovers take on fourth-placed Sheffield United and Crystal Palace could potentially climb two places if they overcome Lewes.
