Shelly Cox scored a late equaliser to ensure that Bristol Academy stayed on top of the National Division with a 2-2 draw against Chelsea.
In a pulsating match played in freezing cold conditions at Oaklands Park, Academy suffered a blow as goalkeeper Laura Barnes-Ellis was taken to hospital with a suspected broken hand and the versatile Stef Curtis took over between the posts. Despite the loss, Bristol went ahead just before the hour mark as Gwennan Harries' run and cross was finished off by Nicky Watts. The lead lasted barely two minutes, Dani Buet's superb through ball was latched onto by Eniola Aluko who finished clinically. Dunia Susi looked to have given Chelsea the points as she forced home a centre from Ellen White but in the dying minutes, albeit with a slightly miscued right foot shot, Cox gave Academy a share of the spoils.
Watford are now just one point behind the leaders after they defeated Charlton Athletic 4-0. Cori Daniels gave the Hornets an 11th minute lead before England hopeful Helen Lander scored a hat-trick to wrap up the win, taking her league tally for the season to 14.
Liverpool lifted themselves towards a mid-table position, thanks to a 3-2 win away to third placed Blackburn Rovers. Levi Penny gave Blackburn an early lead with Faye McCoy equalising, before captain Gayle Formston sent the Reds into a half time lead. Nicky Harding levelled the scores after the break but Liverpool came up with a late strike to take the points, McCoy scoring her second goal.
Everton kept their title challenge on course by coming from behind to beat Leeds Utd 2-1. Jade Moore gave Leeds a fourth minute lead but second half goals from Michelle Evans and Natasha Dowie turned the game in Everton's favour, taking them above Leeds in the table and into fifth place.
A late, late winner gave Birmingham City a precious 2-1 win over Cardiff City which moves them out of the bottom three. Terri Beddows netted the only goal of the first half for Cardiff with Dani Bird equalising for the Blues on the hour, and Sally Lacey scored the decider deep into injury time.
