Manchester Utd stay one point ahead at the top of the table after winning 3-0 against Charlton Athletic.
Katie Zelem fired United ahead with sixteen minutes on the clock and leading scorer Jess Sigsworth added a second just before the hour. Lizzie Arnot wrapped up the win, and Charlton's first league defeat of the season, when she scored the third with fifteen minutes remaining.
The two teams immediately below United in the table met each other and it was Tottenham Hotspur who kept up their 100% record with a 3-1 victory away to Lewes. Sarah Kempson did give the Rookettes a great start as she put them ahead early on but their lead lasted just two minutes, Bianca Baptiste levelling the scores for Spurs and then Rianna Dean netted a first half double to round off a fine result for Karen Hills' side.
Leicester City maintained their improving form and it has taken them into third place after a 2-1 success at Millwall Lionesses. It was Millwall who took the lead midway through the first half when Beth Lumsden drove home a free kick but Leicester hit back strongly after the break, Rosie Axten equalising from the penalty spot on the hour mark, following a foul on Freda Ayisi. Axten then scored a free kick herself to seal a second straight win and lift her team into the top three.
Crystal Palace registered their first win of the season and are up into mid-table as they triumphed 1-0 against London Bees. The only goal of the game came midway through the first half, via a well taken effort from Ashlee Hincks. On the hour, Palace had a chance to double their lead but Hincks' penalty was saved by Sarah Quantrill. Late pressure from Bees almost brought an equaliser when Annabel Johnson struck the bar but Palace held on for their first ever victory at this level.
Aston Villa meanwhile got themselves off the mark by battling out a goalless draw with Durham Women but it was not quite enough to take them off the bottom of the table. Kerri Welsh went closest for Villa during the first half and after the break, Durham stepped up the pace and nearly went in front when Nicki Gears' effort came back off the bar. Villa stood firm to bring a halt to their losing run of three matches, whilst the Wildcats were left a little frustrated after drawing for the third time in four matches.
