Three teams are level on points at the top of the Northern Division, led by Champions Sheffield FC who regained the leadership with a 3-1 win away to Huddersfield Town.
Suzanne Davies opened the scoring for Sheffield after five minutes and Abbie McIver added a second ahead of half time. Emily Heckler pulled one back for Huddersfield early in the second half, before Sophie Barker wrapped up the win for the visitors.
Southern Division title holders Coventry City are in second place following their 4-1 victory over Wolverhampton Wanderers. Maz Gauntlett gave the Sky Blues a first half lead which was cancelled out by Dani Selmes but after the break, Coventry regained their advantage through Helen Dermody and they went on to seal the points with further goals from Samantha Quayle and Karen Clough.
Blackburn Rovers had started the day on top but are now in third, completing the trio on nineteen points, after they drew 1-1 with Newcastle Utd. The Magpies took a third minute lead via an own goal and defended stoutly until Danielle Sheen equalised fifteen minutes from time. Rovers could well have taken all three points but missed a penalty late on.
Bradford City are making their way swiftly up the table and are in fifth place following their 1-0 win away to Nottingham Forest. Olivia Thackray scored the only goal of the game to stretch the Bantams' unbeaten run to six matches.
Sporting Club Albion and Derby County battled out a 2-2 draw which keeps both teams just below mid-table. Albion got off to a flying start with goals from Kirsty Allen and Abbie Hinton, before Derby hit back to earn themselves a share of the spoils through Natalie Reay and an own goal.
Preston North End recorded their first league win of the season, a 2-1 success against Stoke City. After a goalless first half, Beth Stanfield put Preston in front within two minutes of the restart and Yasmine Swarbrick added the second on the hour and although Hannah Bailey gave Stoke hope in the dying minutes, Preston held on for a crucial victory.
