City nearly end Sunderland run
 Women's Football News 7 Jan 2013
National Division leaders Sunderland had their match with Manchester City abandoned six minutes from time due to a serious injury, with City leading 1-0. 
In what had been a well contested match, Keira Ramshaw headed against the bar early on for the Wearsiders and Beth Mead also went close, but City took the lead with a good flowing move from a counter attack which saw Fliss Middleton set up Krystle Johnston to score. Amanda Goodwin almost put them further ahead on the hour with a dipping shot which hit the bar but Sunderland, who had not been beaten in the league in 2012, piled on the pressure with City still holding on.
However in the 84th minute, City goalkeeper Dani Brown sustained a bad knee injury following a collision with Abby Holmes and after a delay of half an hour, referee Rebecca Welch was forced to abandon the game.
Sunderland's lead has now been cut to two points by in-form Watford who notched their third league win in a row when beating Coventry City 1-0. However this did not tell the full story as both teams had chances to win a closely fought match and indeed Watford goalkeeper Lauren Davey had kept her team on level terms with an excellent save. As the game went into injury time, Sarah Wiltshire's initial shot was blocked but Zoe Teasdale followed up to slot home the rebound and keep her side's title challenge on course.
Leeds Utd also maintained their chances by running out 4-1 winners away to Barnet. Rachel Lee had put Leeds in front with the only goal of the first half and after the break, two goals in a four minute spell from Carla Cantrell and Clare Sykes put the Yorkshire side in control. Laura Coombs reduced the arrears for the home side but Cantrell sewed up the points for Leeds five minutes from time with her second goal, this time from the penalty spot.
Cardiff City Ladies and Aston Villa meanwhile battled out a 1-1 draw which moves Cardiff up a place and keeps Villa in fourth. The first half ended goalless before Jade Richards opened the scoring for Villa just after the hour mark, with Paige Stewart earning a share of the spoils for Cardiff ten minutes later.
