FA WPL promotion race to FA WSL 2

From next month we will be  coming to the business end of the Women’s Premier League and with promotion to WSL 2 via a play-off final in May, let’s have a look at who is leading the Northern and Southern Division.

Northern Division

Blackburn Rovers 3-1 Newcastle United
Nottingham Forest 3-2 Stoke City
Sheffield FC 3-0 Preston North End

1. Sheffield 37 pts +42 pl 14

2. Coventry 37 pts + 31 pl 14

3. Blackburn 32 pts +11 pl 14

4. Bradford 30 pts + 11 pl 16

The top 3 teams have 1, 2 or 3 games on hand over the teams ranked below them. It is therefore a 3 horses race for the title. There is still a third of the competition to be played and it may well go to game difference to separate those teams. Sheffield enjoying a clear advantage there.

Southern Division

Lewes 2-2 Keynsham Town
Portsmouth 2-1 Brighton & Hove Albion
Tottenham Hotspur 3-0 Plymouth Argyle
West Ham United 1-1 Queens Park Rangers

1. Cardiff 35 pts +43 pl 14

2. Portsmouth 34 pts +28 pl 13

3. Brighton 31 pts +24  pl 14


Cardiff are leading with Portsmouth hot on their heels ( and a game in hand)  after beating Brighton in the big game this week-end. Charlton and Tottenham would need a big unbeaten run to catch up on those 3 teams.

Cardiff are unfortunately not allowed to gain promotion  as per the FA WSL rules. Should they win the Southern Division and the play-off final, the Northern Division champion will go up.

In the FA WPL Cup semi-final played yesterday at the Valley, Charlton defeated Cardiff by two goals to nil and will meet Sheffield on the 3rd of May.
