Doncaster Rovers Belles capped their Women's Super League Two title success with victory against Millwall in their penultimate game.

The Belles were already crowned champions before kick-off after closest challengers Brighton & Hove Albion were beaten 4-0 by Durham.

Neil Redfearn's side won 1-0 thanks to Jade Pennock's deflected shot.

Hope Powell's Albion can no longer catch Doncaster, who have a seven-point lead after the season's 14th win.

Despite their title success, Doncaster will remain in England's second tier for 2018-19.

They applied to remain in what will be known as the Women's Championship, while Brighton successfully applied for a place in next season's top flight.

The implementation of the new domestic structure resulted in no standard promotion or relegation between the top two divisions this term.
