Tottenham Hotspur have taken over at the top of the FA Women's Championship but the day was overshadowed by a serious injury which forced the abandonment of one game.
Charlton Athletic were entertaining leaders Manchester Utd but Addicks defender Charlotte Kerr was badly injured in a collision whilst United took the lead. The decision was taken to abandon the match after treatment was administered for an hour and the player was taken to hospital where, thankfully, her injury was diagnosed as not too serious.
It was Tottenham therefore who took over as leaders with a 3-0 victory over Lewes. Jessica Naz put Spurs in front just after the half hour and after Rianna Dean had made it two, early in the second half, Jenna Schillaci rounded off a good result for her side with the final goal on the hour mark.
Durham Women needed to battle back in the second half to earn themselves a 2-2 draw against improving Aston Villa. Lisa Robertson gave the Wildcats a first half lead which was cancelled out right away by Jodie Hutton, and then Villa went ahead on the stroke of half time thanks to Kerri Welsh. Durham pressed for an equaliser after the break and Villa's resistance was broken with fifteen minutes remaining when Becky Salicki scored from close range following a Beth Hepple corner.
Leicester City kept themselves in the top half of the table by beating Millwall Lionesses 3-2. Melissa Johnson opened the scoring with two minutes on the clock but shortly after Johnson's penalty had been saved by Charlotte Sansom, Millwall levelled the scores through Evie Clarke. Leicester were awarded another penalty soon afterwards, this time converted by Libby Smith, and Ella Franklin-Fraiture put them further ahead early in the second half. Millwall grabbed themselves a lifeline when Clarke scored her second - from the third penalty of the match - but they could not conjure up an equaliser and Leicester took the points from an entertaining affair.
London Bees got themselves back to winning ways with a 2-1 success against Crystal Palace. All of the goals came in the first half, Katie Wilkinson putting the Bees ahead in the sixth minute and after Andrea Georgiou had brought Palace back on level terms, Lauren Pickett settled a well contested game with a delightful lob on 24 minutes.
