West Ham United Ladies suffered late heartbreak when they went down to a 1-0 defeat against Yeovil Town on Sunday.
The Hammers were looking to end a run of five games without a victory, and looked set to at least earn a share of the spoils before the Glovers' late intervention.
Jade Radburn notched the only goal of the game in the very last minute to pull her side five points clear of the east Londoners in mid-table.
With three games remaining, West Ham will be hoping to overcome their indifferent recent form and move back towards the top three of the FA Women's Premier League Southern Division table.
Meanwhile. the Ladies were dealt a blow off the pitch last week when they missed out on an FA Women's Super League licence from 2014.
The top tier of the women's game is expanding to 18 teams next year across two divisions and West Ham were hoping to be selected among them. But the adjudication process has now entered its final stage, with The FA announcing last week which clubs had been granted licences.
The 18 clubs are:
FA WSL 1: Arsenal Ladies FC, Birmingham City Ladies FC, Bristol Academy Women's FC, Chelsea Ladies FC, Everton Ladies FC, Notts County Ladies FC (formerly known as Lincoln Ladies FC), Liverpool Ladies FC, Manchester City Ladies FC
FA WSL 2: Aston Villa Ladies FC, Doncaster Rovers Belles Ladies FC, Durham Women's FC, London Bees Women's FC (Barnet FC), Millwall Lionesses FC, Oxford United Women's FC, Reading Women's FC, Sunderland Women's FC, Watford Ladies FC, Yeovil Town Ladies FC
