Northern Division leaders Huddersfield Town won 1-0 against Bradford City with a goal from Tara Duce to complete their fixtures and they must wait and see if they are to land the title. Only Blackburn Rovers can now overhaul them and they effectively need to win one of their remaining two games, following their 6-0 victory over Guiseley Vixens. Abby Bennett and Georgia Stevens each netted twice along with Alice Adams and Ellie Doggett. Newcastle Utd have finished their games and sit in second place, Siobhan Jones led their scoring with a hat-trick as they beat Hull City 5-1, Amy Hargrave and Jessica Ellison adding the others. Bianca Owens netted four and Savanna Robson added the other as Middlesbrough ran out 5-0 winners over Fylde Ladies.
Stoke City are back on top of the Midland Division following their 3-0 victory away to TNS Ladies in which Rachael Ball, Jasmin Limb and Courtney Jones scored their goals. Cardiff City Ladies stay fourth but are only four points off the pace after Kerry Bartlett's four-goal haul and Jasmine Turner gave them a 5-1 success at Loughborough Foxes. Coventry Utd meanwhile defeated Sporting Khalsa 8-2, Jessica Lundie and Elizabeth Steele each bagging hat-tricks with Lucy Stead and Elizabeth Stocks also on the scoresheet.
In the Southern Division, Portsmouth have moved into second place following their 3-0 win over Southampton Saints, Alexandra Iusan netting twice along with Kayleigh Tonks. Queen's Park Rangers returned from Lewes with a 3-2 victory under their belts, courtesy of Neethu Haridas, Emma Godden and an own goal. West Ham Utd defeated C & K Basildon 4-0 and a solitary goal from Charlotte Murphy gave Milton Keynes Dons the points against Denham Utd.
Birmingham City are the new leaders of the FA WSL Development League Northern Division after they won 5-0 at Aston Villa, Anna Linden hitting a hat-trick with Antonia Smith adding the other two. Manchester City went level on points with second placed Liverpool by scoring nine times without reply past Notts County. Toni Duggan, Beth O'Donnell and Keeley-Shaye Goodwin all scored twice along with Lucy Ashworth-Clifford, Brenna McPartlan and an own goal. Doncaster Rovers Belles claimed their second win of the season when beating Sheffield FC 4-2. Robyn Harris struck the opener from 25 yards on fifteen minutes and also made it 3-1 just past the hour as she scored her first goals for Belles. Megan Tinsley made it 1-1 on 25 minutes, but Harris squared the ball across the face of goal from the left of the area to set Lauren Breen up to restore home advantage. It was Breen's first involvement in the action; she had only been on the pitch less than two minutes, having come on for Sophie Walton who played nearly half an hour in her comeback game as she bids to gain match fitness following pregnancy. Olivia Leslie headed the Belles' fourth on 75 minutes, while Jess Heald netted Sheffield's second near the end.
Chelsea's 3-1 win at Oxford Utd has taken them top of the Southern Division on goal difference, thanks to strikes from Lauren Pickett, Nicole Douglas and Gilly Flaherty.

London Bees edged out Millwall Lionesses by the odd goal in five and Arsenal ran out 4-1 winners away to Bristol City.
