Huddersfield Town's winning start to the season was brought to a halt as they were beaten 4-1 at home by Stoke City on Sunday.
Natasha Lilly and Jamillah Palmer ensured that Stoke led by two goals inside the opening quarter hour and despite Alarna Fuller pulling a goal back for Town, Laura Garside struck twice to seal a magnificent result for Stoke.
Although going down to their first defeat, Huddersfield do remain on top of the table on goal difference from Blackburn Rovers, who extended their run of victories to five games with a 2-0 success away to Wolverhampton Wanderers. Katie Anderton opened the scoring for Rovers midway through the first half and Amie Fleming sealed the win for Gemma Donnelly's side on the hour mark.
Sheffield FC are up into third after running out 4-1 winners over Derby County. All of Sheffield's goals came in the first half, Sophie Barker giving them the lead and Suzanne Davies adding the second, before Abbie McIver added a brace.
Coventry City saw their four-match winning run come to a pause as they shared a 2-2 result with draw experts Preston North End. In their first match of the season at the Ricoh Arena, Helen Dermody put the Sky Blues in front with Laura Walker equalising for Preston from the penalty spot before the interval. Beth Stanifield then gave Preston the lead for the first time with Coventry hitting back on this occasion, Katie Lowder following up to score after Dermody's initial shot had come back off the bar.
Bradford City also recorded another draw, this time 1-1 with Sporting Club Albion. Charlotte Stuart gave City the lead midway through the first half, before Stephanie Smith replied ten minutes into the second half to seal a result which leaves the two sides occupying the mid-table positions.
Nottingham Forest picked up their first point of the season from a 1-1 draw with Newcastle Utd, who are one place above them. After the Magpies had led through Niamh McLaughlin, Forest earned themselves a share of the spoils via a late equaliser from Chloe Hutsby.
