A hard fought 3-2 win away to Millwall Lionesses has extended Tottenham Hotspur‘s lead at the top to four points.
Sarah Wiltshire gave Spurs a first half lead which was cancelled out on the stroke of half time by Evie Clarke. Recent signing Emma Beckett put the visitors back in front with six minutes remaining with her first goal for the club, but Millwall hit back once again and looked to have earned themselves a share of the spoils when Beth Lumsden equalised in injury time. However, in the final minute, Rianna Dean broke her old club's hearts with her 12th goal of the season and keep Spurs' promotion challenge on course.
With Manchester Utd not having a game, Charlton took the opportunity to replace them in second place on goals scored after they also won 3-2 away to Sheffield Utd. The Addicks led at the break through a header from Kit Graham and Lily Agg added a second just before the hour. The Blades pulled a goal back through Rebecca Rayner but a 35-yard free kick from Charley Clifford put Charlton in control again. Ebony Salmon gave United late hope from the penalty spot but they could not prevent the Addicks from picking up three more important points.
Durham Women complete the top three following their 2-0 victory at Crystal Palace. Emily Roberts opened the scoring for the Wildcats with four minutes on the clock and Nicki Gears broke through to seal the points with the second goal, early in the second half.
London Bees have leapt back into the top five place with a 2-0 success away to Lewes. Sophie Perry almost marked her debut for the Rookettes with a goal when her first half free kick struck the bar but the Bees began to assume control as the game went on and after the hour, they took the lead when Brooke Nunn latched onto a through ball and lobbed the advancing Faye Baker. Just three minutes later, a goalmouth scramble resulted in Ruesha Littlejohn scoring a second to wrap up a sixth win in seven league matches for the Bees.
Aston Villa attracted a crowd in excess of 1,600 for their match against Leicester City at Villa Park, but both sides had to settle for a point apiece as the match ended goalless. Both goalkeepers were in excellent form in a closely contested game with a number of good saves and although Leicester did get the ball in the net late in the second half, Ella Franklin-Fraiture's cross-shot was ruled out for offside.
