Sunderland hold on to top spot in the National Division despite being pegged back to a 2-2 draw by third placed Coventry City.
The Wearsiders took a sixth minute lead through Sophie Williams and looked to be on their way towards an important victory when Beth Mead put them two ahead early in the second half. However the Sky Blues gave themselves hope when Milly Durrant pulled a goal back and they earned themselves a point when Courtney Sweetman-Kirk netted an injury time equaliser which keeps them two points behind their opponents.
Leeds Utd were unable to capitalise on their two main challengers cancelling each other out as they were also held to a 1-1 draw by Nottingham Forest. It could have been much worse though for the Yorkshire side as Forest took the lead just after the hour mark with an Aileen Whelan goal and they held on until the third minute of injury time, when substitute Millie Bright snatched a last gasp equaliser to keep Leeds level on points with leaders Sunderland.
To make matters worse for Forest, the late, late goal means they are back in the bottom two again because Cardiff City won 1-0 against Watford. Steph Williams scored the all-important goal for the South Wales side with fifteen minutes remaining.
Barnet received a setback to their hopes of joining the top three in the title race as they went down to a 1-0 defeat at Reading FC Women. Nikki Watts netted her 14th goal of the season to earn Reading the points which lift her side back into the top half of the table.
There was another late goal at Aston Villa where the home side drew 1-1 against Charlton Athletic in a mid-table clash. Villa had led since the 11th minute when Emma Follis had put her side in front but recent signing Cori Daniels scored her first goal for the Addicks in injury time to earn them a share of the spoils.
