Both Crystal Palace and Charlton Athletic have an opportunity to move within a point of the Barclays Women’s Championship leaders on Sunday.

Sunday 10 March

Crystal Palace v Sheffield United (Selhurst Park, 12pm)
Charlton Athletic v Reading (VCD Athletic, 2pm)

The south London rivals both have two games in hand on top-of-the-table Sunderland, whom they trail by four points.

Palace entertain Sheffield United at Selhurst Park and go into the game boosted by February Manager and Player of the Month awards for Laura Kaminski and Izzy Atkinson respectively.

While Sheffield are four points above the relegation zone, Reading are just two as they travel to take on Charlton, who have lost only the once in the league.

Lewes and Watford occupy the bottom two places and face midweek journeys north.

Monday 11 March
