Watford are the new leaders of the National Division following their 4-1 victory away to Liverpool.
Sian Williams' side top the table by virtue of having scored one more goal after scoring four times in the second half. The first half ended goalless but Helen Lander and Lisa Burrows put Watford two in front before Reds captain Gayle Formston pulled one back on the hour. Ashlee Hincks restored the two goal advantage and Ellen Maggs scored the all-important fourth which sees her side edge their noses in front.
Bristol Academy drop back into second place by the slenderest of margins but they retain their 100% record after leaving it late to beat Birmingham City 2-1. Justine Lorton gave them a first half lead from a free kick with Heather Scheuber equalising on the stroke of half time and it looked as though Academy have to settle for a draw after hitting the woodwork three times and finding Blues goalkeeper Sue Wood in outstanding form. However, as the game moved into injury time. a Corinne Yorston cross picked out substitute Nicky Watts whose perfectly executed far post volley gave Academy the points.
After two successive defeats, Blackburn Rovers got back to winning ways with a 3-1 success at Cardiff City although they needed to come from behind at the interval. Kelly Isaac gave Cardiff the lead midway through the first half but after the break, Katie Anderton scored twice to turn the game in Blackburn's favour and Caroline Dixon added the third.
