Sunderland have edged a point clear at the top of the National Division after they fought out a 1-1 draw away to third placed Nottingham Forest.
Forest had won their previous meeting on the opening day of the season and they went in front seven minutes into the second half, Catherine Lawson continuing her recent scoring spree with the opening goal. Sunderland have been unbeaten since that day though and they hit back twelve minutes later through captain Steph Bannon and they saw the game out for a point despite finishing with ten players following the sending off of Abby Holmes for a second bookable offence.
A win would have taken Blackburn Rovers back to the summit but they remain in second after they went down to a 1-0 defeat at Watford, who ended their run of draws with their first league victory of the season. Winger Sarah Wiltshire is having a superb season in front of goal and she took herself to the top of the division's goalscoring chart when scoring the winner in the 22nd minute.
Reading FC Women bounced back from their cup disappointment seven days previously to run out 5-1 winners over Barnet. Mikaela Howell had a great day as she bagged herself a four-goal, completing her hat-trick within five minutes of the second half and, although Stacey Sowden pulled one back for the Bees, Howell and Danielle Puddefoot went on to round off their side's biggest victory of the season.
Leeds Utd picked up an important point when sharing a 1-1 draw with Millwall Lionesses. The Yorkshire side went in front through an unfortunate own goal from Millwall goalkeeper Michelle Beazley, the ball rebounding off her and into the net after Gemma Bonner's header had struck the post. The Lionesses earned themselves a point early in the second half, Kate Longhurst slotting home from the penalty spot.
