United take command
 Women's Football FA Women's Championship News - 4 Apr 2019
 
Manchester Utd are just two wins away from landing the FA Women's Championship title after beating second placed Tottenham Hotspur 5-1 on Sunday.
 
United got off to a flying start as Katie Zelem fired them ahead with four minutes on the clock and the midfielder added a second from the penalty spot shortly afterwards following a foul on Leah Galton. Jenna Schillaci renewed hopes for Spurs when she pulled a goal back from a free kick just before half time but two minutes into the second half, Mollie Green restored the two-goal advantage. Jess Sigsworth headed in the fourth from a Lizzie Arnot cross with nine minutes remaining and Galton rounded off the scoring late on.
 
Defeat for Spurs has given a glimmer of light to the two chasing teams and both took advantage with victories. Third placed Durham Women won 1-0 at Lewes to narrow the gap on second place to four points. The home side went close during the first half with a strike from Jess King which hit the bar but the only goal of the game came three minutes before half time, when Nicki Gears latched onto an Abi Cottam through ball to score.
 
Charlton Athletic meanwhile kept pace with Durham, thanks to a 2-1 success away to London Bees. Elizabeta Ejupi put the Addicks in front just after the half hour with a neat finish. Both sides struck the woodwork early in the second half, before Kit Graham doubled Charlton's lead from a through ball by Charlotte Gurr. Lauren Pickett drilled in a consolation goal from long range for the Bees late on but it was Charlton who took three valuable points to keep their promotion hopes alive.
 
Sheffield Utd are up into fifth place, their highest position of the season to date, after winning 2-1 away to Leicester City. A tight first half ended goalless and the game burst into life with seventeen minutes remaining, when Hayley James headed Leicester in front from a corner. The Blades' response was a swift and spectacular one, Ellie Gilliatt firing in a powerful strike from 25 yards, and then - for the second week in succession - Jade Pennock netted an injury time winner when she scored from close range following a corner.
 
Aston Villa made it six games unbeaten and completed a full house of away victories in the Championship on Sunday when they beat Millwall Lionesses 3-1. Jodie Hutton kept up her excellent run of form by giving Villa a seventh minute lead but an own goal brought Millwall back on level terms midway through the first half. Both teams struck the woodwork before Villa went back in front through Tanisha Smith on the stroke of half time. Aoife Hurley sealed the victory when she headed in from a corner with twenty minutes remaining.
