National Division leaders Sunderland went down to their second defeat of the season when they were beaten 2-1 at home by Aston Villa.
Ini Umotong put Villa in front midway through the second half and Beth Mead looked to have salvaged a point for the Wearsiders with her ninth goal of the season, seven minutes from time. However in injury time, a hesitation in the Sunderland defence allowed Emma Follis to nip in and score a winning goal for Villa, who are now just three points off the pace in fourth place.
A win would have returned Coventry City to top spot but they also went down to a home defeat, 4-2 to Nottingham Forest. Sophie Bradley and Andi Bell put Forest two ahead at half time and Suzanne Davies added a third five minutes after the restart. Jade Formaston and Courtney Sweetman-Kirk both netted to give the Sky Blues renewed hope but Bell's second goal clinched the points for Forest and gave them their third win on the trot.
The last remaining unbeaten record in the division came to an end as Cardiff City were beaten 2-1 by Barnet. Cardiff did lead at the interval through a goal from Natasha Harding but Cheryl Williams levelled matters early in the second half and Renata Inniss grabbed a winner for the Bees with just four minutes remaining.
The two teams at the foot of the table met each other and it was Reading FC Women who emerged as 3-1 winners over Watford. The Golden Girls got off to a perfect start and took the lead after six minutes through Lois Roche but Nikki Watts put Reading back on level terms midway through the first half. Watts then sprung the offside trap four minutes into the second half and netted her tenth goal of the season and Becky Jane wrapped up the points for Reading late on, ending their run of five straight defeats and lifting themselves out of the bottom two.
