Sunderland have returned to the top of the National Division following their 1-0 victory over Manchester City.
It was the second time City had travelled to the North East in the league this season after the original meeting had been abandoned due to a serious injury with them leading 1-0 at the time. The Wearsiders were made to work very hard against a powerful Manchester City side who were well organised and pushed them right to the end. Beth Mead gave the home side a first half advantage with her fourteenth goal of the season but despite having opportunities to seal the victory, they faced a nervy end to the game as City piled forward late on in search of an equaliser.
Watford had started the day as leaders but their title hopes took a huge knock as they were beaten 3-0 by Leeds Utd, who did their own chances a power of good. Tanya Rich gave Leeds a fourteenth minute lead when she neatly converted a Danielle Sheen cross. Four minutes into the second half, Emma Lipman headed in a Carey Huegett corner to double their lead and after Nat Staneff struck the bar from another corner, Abbie Lee sewed up the win with the third goal late on for Leeds who trail Sunderland by five points and have a game in hand.
Aston Villa moved back into the top four with a 2-0 victory against Portsmouth. The two sides had met seven days earlier in the Premier League Cup semi finals with Villa winning 2-1 on that occasion and they sealed the win this time thanks to first half goals from Chloe Jones and Olivia Ferguson.
Charlton Athletic kept up their recent improving run of form by winning 2-0 away to Barnet. Sinead Boyer put the Addicks ahead on the quarter hour and Gemma Shepherd added the second after the break to give Charlton their third win in four matches and condemn the home side to finish bottom of the table.
Coventry City meanwhile claimed their third league win on the trot with a 2-0 success at Cardiff City Ladies. Helen Dermody gave Cardiff the lead in the 36th minute and Karen Clough made the game safe with the second goal deep into the second half.
