Doncaster Rovers Belles extended their lead at the top of WSL 2 to six points with a 3-1 victory over Watford on Saturday night.
All of the goals came during the first half, leading scorer Jess Sigsworth putting them ahead with seven minutes on the clock and Sam Tierney adding a second shortly afterwards. Maz Pacheco made it three just after the half hour, before Anneka Nuttall pulled one back for the Golden Girls on the stroke of half time. Doncaster therefore go six points clear from Millwall Lionesses, whose match at Sheffield FC the following day was postponed.
Brighton & Hove Albion moved to within a single point of second placed Millwall by beating Tottenham Hotspur 2-0. Both teams went close and hit the woodwork in a well contested first half but a minute before the interval, it was Brighton who went ahead when Chloe Peplow curled in a delightful free kick from just outside the area. Bianca Baptiste did have a goal disallowed for Spurs during the second half but Brighton were to have the final say, Ini Umotong crossing for for Amanda Nilden to slot home the second.
Durham Women remain in fourth but lost some ground on the top three as they were held to a 1-1 draw by Oxford Utd. Jordan Atkinson put the Wildcats ahead on the half hour following a cross from Abi Cottam but Oxford hit back to earn themselves a share of the spoils through a special moment for teenager Imogen Lancaster, who marked her debut by scoring the equaliser when converting a cross by Sophie Baker.
