Northern Division One
The top two did not play on Sunday but Hull City received a setback to their challenge as they were beaten 1-0 by Chorley. Kerry Bergin scored the only goal of the game for Chorley who still have hopes of making a late run.
Blackpool Wren Rovers climbed up into fifth place, thanks to a 3-1 victory over Norton & Stockton Ancients. Robyn Hodkin gave Wren Rovers the lead and Nikki Berko added a further two goals, with Norton's consolation coming from Victoria Hutchinson.
Tranmere Rovers are off the bottom of the table following their 4-1 win against Leeds Ladies. Despite Bridie Hannon putting Leeds in front in the second minute, Charlotte Cloy and Kate Horne each netted twice to earn Tranmere their second league win of the season.
Midlands Division One
Runaway leaders Leicester City Women moved themselves three points closer towards the title with a 3-2 victory over second placed Radcliffe Olympic. Rania Ramadan and Dani Saulter were on target for Radcliffe who were 2-1 up with sixteen minutes remaining but a Helen Busby hat-trick saw Leicester to their seventeenth straight win. The result means that only Wolverhampton Wanderers can now mathematically overhaul Leicester.
