GEORGIA Stanway's Manchester City have kept their hopes alive of clinching the FA Women's Super League.

Gareth Taylor's side ensured the hotly-contested battle for top spot will go down to the last game next weekend, thanks to a superb 4-0 win over Birmingham at the Academy Stadium.

Stanway, who hails from Barrow, played the full 90 minutes.

It means they have moved one point ahead of Chelsea in the title race but the London club have one game in hand.

Chelsea play eighth-placed Tottenham tomorrow before finishing at home to Reading on Saturday while City travel to West Ham on the final say.

Winger Lauren Hemp produced a Player of the Match display and said her side will push Emma Hayes' side to the wire.

"Credit to the team. We scored four good goals," she told the club's website.

"We'd have loved to score more but we kept the pressure on and took Birmingham to the final whistle.

"It's in the back of our minds - we'd love to win the league - although sadly it's not in our hands.

"It's down to Chelsea now and they should know we're right behind them.

"We've done what we could. We put in a good performance [against them] but sadly it wasn't enough. On Sunday, we did what we could, although we could have scored more.

"We're right there and we'll keep pushing. Next weekend, we'll hope to score more and be in contention because the league is still up for grabs."
