Hull City kept up the pace at the top of the table and remain five points clear after winning 1-0 away to Chester-le-Street Town.

Brighouse Town came through a tough away trip to Bolton Wanderers with a 3-2 victory which keeps them in the title hunt. Charlotte Proud gave Brighouse a third minute lead with Saffron Newhouse levelling shortly afterwards, Aimi Beresford then putting Brighouse back in front, early in the second half. Newhouse squared things up once more with her second goal but Beresford completed her own double eighteen minutes from time with a decisive strike.

TNS Ladies went into their game away to Radcliffe Olympic needing a victory to keep the title race alive but they went down to a 4-1 defeat which ended their hopes. Rania Ramadan, Beth Bailey, Kayleigh Aylmer and an own goal gave Radcliffe a win which takes them into fourth place, with Kim Bebbington replying.
Burton Albion were held to a 2-2 draw by Steel City Wanderers, who staged a second half fightback for a share of the spoils.

A dramatic late comeback from Keynsham Town saw them hold leaders Southampton Women to a 4-4 draw and put an end to the Hampshire side's 100% record. Kerry Bartlett gave Keynsham a first half lead which was cancelled out by Emma Pinner but goals after the break from Chelsie Hay, Cassie Thorp and Natasha Angel looked to have seen Southampton on their way to victory. However in the last ten minutes, a Justine Lorton double and Jade Radburn salvaged a point for Keynsham.
