Doncaster Rovers Belles and Reading were both promoted to Women’s Super League One after victories on Sunday.
Doncaster came from behind to win at London Bees thanks to Courtney Sweetman-Kirk’s brace.
Reading won 3-1 away at Watford in the day’s early kick-off before their promotion was sealed when third-placed Yeovil failed to beat Oxford.
In the title race, Reading remain second, three points behind the Belles, but with a game in hand on the leaders.
At The Hive, the Belles fell behind to Emma Whitter’s early goal for London Bees before the league’s top goalscorer, Sweetman-Kirk, netted either side of half-time to take her tally for the season up to 20 league goals.
That win was enough to secure promotion for Doncaster regardless of other results, ensuring a return to the top flight for the first time since their
Kayleigh Hines’ early goal for Oxford saw them win at Yeovil, with the midfielder later involved in a collision which saw Nat Haigh stretchered off with a serious-looking head injury.
Melissa Fletcher, Helen Ward and Rachel Rowe all scored for the Royals at bottom-club Watford, who did pull one back with an Ellie Mason penalty.
Elsewhere, Aston Villa won 2-1 away at Millwall Lionesses.
