Nottingham Forest took over the leadership of the Northern Division for the first time this season with a 4-0 victory away to Wolverhampton Wanderers.
The opening half hour was fairly even before Forest took the lead on 33 minutes, Stephanie Smith driving home a shot from 25 yards. Smith then scored her second early in the second half and leading scorer Amber Hughes netted twice in a three minute spell to round off the victory for Forest and add to Wolves' problems at the bottom.
Stoke City continue to do well in their first season in the league and are back up into second again, level on points with Nottingham Forest, following their 5-2 win at Leeds Utd. They went in front after ten minutes when Jade Boulton scored direct from a corner and captain Meg Bowyer doubled their lead via a long range free kick, with Emma Coates reducing the arrears for Leeds from the penalty spot two minutes later. Leeds got back on level terms on the hour when Abbie McIver slid the ball home but Stoke regained the lead on 66 minutes, a Boulton cross being deflected into her own net by Olivia Smart. Laura Garside then came off the bench to score twice and make the game safe for Stoke.
Sporting Club Albion meanwhile defeated Newcastle Utd 6-2 and have climbed into the top six, above their opponents on goal difference. Robyn James was on target twice for Albion along with Kayleigh Griffiths, Ellie Gerhold, Kelly Darby and Louise Fellows while Beth Gardner netted a goal in each half in reply for Newcastle.
