If the city club beat third-placed Surbiton and second-placed Reading lose to fourth-placed Clifton on Saturday then Canterbury will finish top of the top-flight for the first time.
Player-coach Jen Wilson struck the only goal as Canterbury beat Leicester at Polo Farm on Saturday but played-down the significance of the trip to Surbiton (2pm), where the city club’s hopes of the title were ended by a final day defeat last season.
She said: “Every game is important and this is no different, but just because it’s Surbiton doesn’t mean it’s any more important than last week or the week before.
“We don’t want to put any extra emphasis on it. There won’t be any hype from us. It’s just another week.
“Surbiton away is always a tough battle, it’s going to be a tough game, but it is irrelevant what happened last season. Most of the current players weren’t involved on that day anyway, and for those that were, it is no longer a memory - we only look ahead.”
A fourth straight clean sheet and fifth in six games earned the win against Leicester at Polo Farm on Saturday evening.
Wilson added: “1-0 seems to be the scoreline that we are getting right now and I would settle for another one on Saturday, that’s for sure.”
