Sheffield FC have taken over as the new leaders of the Northern Division following their 2-0 victory over Preston North End.
A goal in each half from Jodie Michalska earned Sheffield the points and, as well as being top of the table on goal difference, they are the division's only remaining unbeaten team.
Newcastle Utd bounced back from a heavy defeat seven days earlier to run out 5-2 winners at Leicester City and move back into second place.
Stacy Crooks kept up her good goalscoring form by giving Newcastle a lead which was doubled soon after by Lizzie Fraser. Leicester fought back after the break and strikes from Vicky Gallagher and Issy Hayes levelled the scores once again but substitute Molly Collinson put Newcastle back in front with fifteen minutes remaining. Crooks then netted her second and Charlotte Potts rounded off the scoring with the fifth goal.
Blackburn Rovers had started the day as leaders but went down to their first defeat, beaten 3-2 by Nottingham Forest. Andi Bell gave Forest a first half lead against her old club, which was levelled ahead of the break by Nichol Forster. Katie Anderton then put Rovers in front for the first time early in the second half but Aileen Whelan equalised for the home side who went on to take the points when Reanne Thomas netted the decisive goal, four minutes from time.
Wolverhampton Wanderers meanwhile celebrated their first victory back in the Premier League, 2-1 away to Derby County. The home side opening the scoring after just 15 seconds through Cara Newton but Wolves were back on level terms just after the half hour, Dani Selmes slotting home from the penalty spot. The game remained in the balance until the 77th minute when Jamillah Palmer finished off a good move to take Wolves off the bottom of the table.
