Cardiff City Ladies face a wait to see if they have reached the Final of the Reserve Section League Cup for the first time after they defeated Leicester City Women 2-0 on Sunday. Fran Dalton and Leah Williams scored the goals for Cardiff but the game was abandoned before the final whistle after a nasty injury to Leicester goalkeeper Amy Mullett and the management committee will make a decision soon over whether the result will stand. The other semi final between Bradford City and Nottingham Forest was postponed.
In the Midland Division, Cardiff's two nearest rivals both picked up important wins to reduce their lead to three points. Coventry City scored twelve times without reply past Leicester City Ladies and have taken over second spot on goal difference. No less than eight different players got on the scoresheet for the Sky Blues with Maria De Compos, Emily Hanson, Sami Ryder and Jade Whitfield each bagging doubles and there was one apiece from Alison Livermore, Jade Cole, Cherelle Archibald and Stav Williams. Wolverhampton Wanderers meanwhile won 3-1 away to Loughborough Students, courtesy of a Chloe Dodd hat-trick.
Brighton & Hove Albion continue to catch up ground on Southern Division leaders Charlton Athletic and they are now three points adrift following their 2-0 victory over Tottenham Hotspur. West Ham Utd replaced Portsmouth in third place after beating them 3-0, goals coming from Danielle Cliffe, Sasha Kelly and Beth Lowther.
It was League Cup day in the FA WSL Development League and in Group One, the only match to be played was the clash between the top two, who went into the game sporting 100% records. In the end it was Arsenal who ran out 6-0 winners over Reading Women, thanks to a goal apiece from Caroline Weir, Carla Humphrey, Freda Ayisi, Bianca Bragg, Leah Williamson and Taome Oliver.
The top two also met in Group Two, the Merseyside derby between Everton and Liverpool ending in a goalless draw which maintains the Reds' lead of three points. Sunderland follow on after Madelaine Hill, Elizabeth McCubbin and Shannon Etherington gave them a 3-1 win at Doncaster Rovers Belles, whose consolation came from Hope Knight. Manchester City picked up their first victory, 3-2 against Durham Women. Holly Brady netted twice and Gemma O'Keefe the other for City with Alex Saunders and Meg Lawson replying.
In Group Three, the derby between Birmingham City and Aston Villa finished goalless to leave Villa one point ahead of Notts County, who went down 3-2 to Yeovil Town. Helen Bleazard was on target twice for Yeovil with Jade Kirby adding the other. Bristol Academy meanwhile won 3-2 away to Oxford Utd with goals from Sally Gill, Vera Bernabe and Lauren Haynes.
