Durham Women 1 (Gutteridge 83) Sheffield FC 0
A late header by Natalie Gutteridge gave Durham Women their fourth win in five matches and leaves them just one point off the pace in WSL 2.
Gutteridge had the game's first chance on seven minutes, shooting just wide after good work down the left by debutant Tyler Dodds. Jodie Michalska shot high and wide in the 24th minute for Sheffield and just before the interval, was off target with a fine effort from the edge of the area.
Durham were inches away from taking a 49th minute lead with Beth Hepple unlucky to see a screamer come back off Jules Draycott's bar. The bar came to Durham's aid fifteen minutes from time when lively substitute Chelsea Flanagan struck the woodwork after seizing on Helen Alderson's punch.
One goal always looked like settling it and, when Sheffield could not deal with Hepple's high hanging corner, Gutteridge nodded in her sixth goal of the season from close range.
The drama was not over and in stoppage time, Alderson saved superbly from substitute Hannah Cain to protect the home lead.
