Middlesbrough have had a good Christmas period and are up into second place in the table after winning the two matches played during the spell. Firstly, they beat Chorley 3-2 thanks to a Dani Scarr double and Nicky Duckling, then on Sunday they followed this up with a 2-1 victory over Cheadle Heath Nomads. In-form striker Duckling was on target once again along with Kenzie Parkes to take Sammie Leigh's side well into title contention.
Copsewood (Coventry) picked up where they left off ahead of the break by winning 3-1 away to Loughborough Students, which takes them six points clear at the top of the table and still with two games in hand. Sarah Rowles netted twice for Copsewood during the first half and after the students had pulled a goal back after the interval, Jodie McGuckin scored a decisive third to seal the points for the leaders.
Leicester City Ladies moved back into second place, but only after being pushed hard by bottom of the table Mansfield Town before emerging as 4-3 winners. Becky Preston hit a hat-trick and Sam Clarke the other to return Leicester into the top two.
