Tottenham Hotspur kept hold of the leadership in the Championship with a hard fought local derby victory over Charlton Athletic.
Just two points separated the teams going into the match and it produced only one goal, Jessica Naz settling matters in Spurs' favour by scoring at the mid-point of the first half.
Tottenham therefore kept themselves two points ahead of Manchester Utd who ran out 5-0 winners away to Crystal Palace. Lizzie Arnot gave United the lead during the first half and the Scotland international scored her second after the break. Mollie Green then curled home a delightful third on the hour and after Alex Greenwood had scored from the penalty spot, Green completed her double to wrap up her team's sixth win in seven matches.
Durham Women now occupy third place after their 5-1 victory at Millwall Lionesses. The Wildcats went into the game in good form and an astonishing start saw four goals in the opening nine minutes. Beth Hepple opened the scoring via a free kick in the second minute and Nicki Gears quickly made it two. Evie Clarke reduced the arrears a minute later for Millwall but Durham's response was a swift one, Hepple finding the net for a second time. There was a seemingly remarkable 28 minutes before another goal came, Durham captain Sarah Wilson putting her side further ahead and Zoe Ness ensured that they scored five times for the second week in succession, with the only goal of the second half.
Lewes emerged from a tough week by picking up a point from a 1-1 draw with fast improving Aston Villa. The Rookettes had parted company with manager John Donoghue during the week and found themselves a goal down after sixteen minutes when Jade Richards headed home from a corner. Villa looked to be on their way towards their second win in a row but, shortly after Katie McIntyre had hit the bar with a free kick, Lewes grabbed themselves a share of the spoils in spectacular style when Sarah Kempson fired home a shot from 30 yards, eighteen minutes from time.
In contrast, it has been a very good few days for London Bees. On the back of the news that some of their long term injury victims are back, the Bees notched up their third league win of the season when beating Sheffield Utd 2-0. Jade Pennock hit the bar for the Blades early on and Rachel Unitt struck the woodwork at the other end but ten minutes into the second half, the Bees took the lead when Ruesha Littlejohn finished off from Katie Wilkinson's pass. Nicola Gibson then scored a second to seal a result which means that the Bees draw level on points with their opponents.
