WSL 2 leaders Doncaster Rovers Belles returned to winning ways with a 3-1 victory over London Bees on Saturday night.
The visitors went into the game in good form and took the lead after five minutes when Katie Wilkinson scored from the penalty spot but the Belles were soon back on level terms when Jess Sigsworth also slotted home a penalty. Sigsworth netted her second early in the second half and Kirsty Hanson wrapped up the win with ten minutes remaining.
Millwall Lionesses also bounced back from their first defeat of the season to win 4-0 away to Watford. Ashlee Hincks scored twice inside the opening eight minutes and Millwall went on to seal the points with further strikes in a five minute spell during the second half from Rianna Dean and Amber Gaylor.
On Wednesday night, Millwall travelled to Tottenham Hotspur to play their game in hand and were held to a 1-1 draw. Both teams had opportunities to score before Wendy Martin put Tottenham ahead on 73 minutes with a bullet header from a corner. Billie Brooks equalised three minutes later but Millwall had to settle for a share of the spoils and they now trail Doncaster by five points, with three games left to play.
Brighton & Hove Albion meanwhile kept themselves in the running for a top two place by beating Aston Villa 2-1. The Seagulls had the better of the first half with Kirsty Barton and Ini Umotong both scoring as well as hitting the bar twice, before a well executed volley by Tash Baptiste brought Villa back into the game. Villa pushed for a late equaliser but Hope Powell's side stood firm for their tenth victory of the season.
Durham Women look as though they are going to finish fourth for the second season running, following their 6-3 defeat at the hands of Tottenham Hotspur. In an amazing see-saw match, Spurs sped into a three-goal lead inside seven minutes, Wendy Martin opening the scoring before Bianca Baptiste added a brace. Durham hit back with Beth Hepple replying on the stroke of half time and Nicki Gears then netting twice to complete a remarkable fightback but Spurs were not to be denied, Sarah Wiltshire restoring their lead before they finally wrapped up the points with late strikes from Ronnell Humes and Lucia Leon.
Sheffield FC put a six point gap between themselves and Oxford Utd after winning their meeting 4-1, the third match in a row where they have netted four times. The first half was goalless but Sheffield started the second half in powerful fashion, Emma Johnson bagging a double with Hannah Cain and Jenna Dear also finding the net inside the opening twenty minutes. Substitute Georgia Timms grabbed a late consolation for Oxford who are still trying to recapture their early season form.
