Sheffield FC's 17-match unbeaten run in the league came to a crashing end as they were beaten 3-0 by Bradford City.

Huddersfield Town continue to impress in their first season in the league, winning 3-0 against Wolverhampton Wanderers to stay level on points with leaders Stoke.

For the second week in a row, Derby County won another high scoring affair, this time 5-3 in their local derby with Nottingham Forest. Lauren Steadman gave Derby a ninth minute lead which was cancelled out by Chloe Hutsby and Melissa Johnson put them back in front on the stroke of half time. Jemma Grimadell levelled matters again early in the second half before Derby then went two goals ahead thanks to Johnson and Natalie Reay. Audrey Moore pulled a goal back for Forest but Reay netted her second to sew up a win for Derby who were also grateful to outfield player Becky Langley who took over in goal during the first half due to an injury.
