Women seek to close the gap

The postponement of Charlton Women's last two games has meant that we are now four points behind leaders Sunderland with two games in hand. The full league table:


There are only two Women's Championship fixtures this Sunday. We host tenth place Reading at The Oakwood (2pm kick off) and Crystal Palace entertain eighth place Sheffield United. Home wins would mean that the gap would be down to one point with a game in hand for both clubs, although Palace do have a vastly superior goal difference.

Charlton and Palace don't play their other game in hand until April 14th (we travel to Watford). The season finishes with Charlton travelling to Sunderland for the penultimate fixture on April 21st and hosting Southampton on April 28th when Palace play at home to Sunderland. It could very much go down to the wire.

The Reading game on Sunday will be the last game at The Oakwood as the remaining home games (Lionesses 24th March, Birmingham 31st March, Southampton 28th April) will be at The Valley. Ticket details:
