Doncaster Rovers Belles came from behind to beat Durham Women 2-1 and keep hold of the leadership of WSL 2.
The Wildcats took the lead through a header from captain Sarah Wilson, before Emily Simpkins broke through to score the equaliser. Beth Hepple and Nicki Gears both hit the woodwork for the home side and it was the Belles who were to take the points when, just after the hour, Jess Sigsworth scored with an excellent shot on the turn to keep up her tremendous run of form.
Millwall Lionesses stay one point behind the Belles and maintained their own unbeaten record by winning 2-0 at Aston Villa. The home side, looking for their second victory of the season, matched their opponents for much of the game and it remained in the balance until twenty minutes from time, when Ashlee Hincks set up Charlotte Devlin to give Millwall the lead. Devlin then went on to score her second late on to finally end Villa's resistance and sew up the Lionesses' eighth win in nine matches.
Brighton & Hove Albion climbed back into the top three after they defeated London Bees 3-1, with all of the goals coming in the first half. In an action packed start to the game, Paula Howells fired the Bees in front but just two minutes later, Danielle Buet levelled the scores when she curled home a free kick. Midway through the first half, Ini Umotong burst through to put Brighton ahead for the first time and Aileen Whelan netted the third from a corner, shortly before half time.
Tottenham Hotspur became the third team in WSL 2 to come from behind to win when they beat Oxford Utd 2-1. Chloe Chivers headed Oxford in front from an Ellis Hillman cross but after the break, Tottenham began to get on top and Coral-Jade Haines equalised from the penalty spot after Hannah Short had been penalised for handball. Ryah Vyse then netted the winner with ten minutes remaining and brought her side's seven match losing run in all competitions to an end.
The other match between Watford and Sheffield FC was postponed due to a waterlogged pitch and a new date will be arranged.
