St Albans City Ladies remain in the Beds & Herts Women’s League Division One title hunt after they secured a 1-0 win against Harvesters.
The game was open throughout and both teams had chances.
The match was goalless at the interval but the Saints went in front just before the hour mark as Megan Kiff rifled a free-kick into the net.
Kiff was dismissed soon after following a strong challenge but the defence, marshalled by Sarah Ward and Faith Trounce, held firm.
City did come close to extending their lead through Georga Knight and Holly Sheriden.
