The top two were involved in F.A.Women's Cup action over the weekend but their two nearest rivals were unable to make up any significant ground on them.
Third placed Blackburn Rovers went down to only their third defeat of the season, beaten 2-1 by Stoke City. After a goalless first half, Blackburn did take the lead through Sophie Jones but goals in an eight minute spell from Cassie Hyde and Kate Asher turned the game around in Stoke's favour.
Bradford City meanwhile were held to a 2-2 draw by Newcastle Utd, who inched another point towards safety. Charlotte Stuart and Molly-Mae Sharpe were on target for Bradford while Newcastle replied with goals from Hannah Keane and Dannika Purdham.
Huddersfield Town remain in contention for a top half place following their 1-0 success away to Sporting Club Albion. Alarna Fuller scored the only goal of the game with seventeen minutes remaining.
Two of the teams in the bottom three met each other in a vital clash and it was Nottingham Forest who triumphed 3-1 away to Wolverhampton Wanderers, who look doomed after this defeat. Natasha Meade netted the only goal of the first half for Forest and just after the hour mark, Katie Lowder made it two from the penalty spot. Jade Cross gave Wolves hope when she pulled one back with ten minutes remaining but Isabel Sullivan sewed up a crucial win for Forest in injury time.
Derby County remain in the bottom two but gave their survival chances a huge shot in the arm with a 3-2 victory at Preston North End. Beth Stanfield gave Preston a first half lead which was cancelled out by Emily Jeffery and then Jeffery scored from the penalty spot just before half time. A Megan Clarkson own goal brought the scores level midway through the second half but with six minutes left, Melissa Johnson fired in a left foot shot to earn Derby three precious points.
