Huddersfield Town lead the Northern Division table by three points following a thrilling 5-4 victory over Nottingham Forest.
Emily Heckler gave Town an early lead which was cancelled out by Natasha Meade and although Debbie Hastings put them back in front, Megan Howard equalised on the stroke of half time. Alarna Fuller and Samantha Conroy netted for Town inside the opening eight minutes of the second half with Meade replying, before Hastings scored a decisive fifth goal, despite Amy White pulling one back in injury time.
Sheffield FC bounced back from their defeat seven days previously and it was Wolverhampton Wanderers who caught the backlash. Suzanne Davies led the scoring with a hat-trick as the reigning Champions won 8-1, Abbie McIver adding a brace with Carla Ward, Amy Beanland and Ellie Gilliatt completing the tally, while Wolves' consolation came from Victoria Palin.
Stoke City had started the day as leaders but suffered a 3-1 defeat at the hands of Coventry City. All of the Sky Blues' goals came in the first half, Katie Lowder, Ashleigh Neville and Callan Barber all finding the net before Hannah Bailey replied for Stoke late on.
Blackburn Rovers meanwhile made it three wins on the trot and inflicted a first defeat of the season on Derby County. Katie Anderton grabbed the only goal of the game to take Blackburn into fifth place, one ahead of Derby.
Bradford City and Preston North End both finished in the top three last season but neither have quite got into their stride this time around. The sides met for the second time in this campaign and drew for the second time, their meeting finishing goalless.
Newcastle Utd picked up their first victory of the season, winning 3-2 away to Sporting Club Albion. Stacy Crooks was the hero for Newcastle as she bagged a hat-trick, with Stephanie Smith and Kirsty Allen replying for Albion.
