With Durham Women not having a game, Aston Villa took the opportunity to replace them as leaders of the FA Women's Championship by winning 6-0 away to Crystal Palace.
Melissa Johnson gave Villa the lead with barely a minute on the clock and Emma Follis added a second just before half time via a 20-yard free kick. After the break, Johnson scored twice more in a five minute spell to seal her second hat-trick in four matches but Villa were not finished there, Amy West making it five with a long range strike and Shania Hayles rounding off the scoring with five minutes remaining.
London City Lionesses stay three points ahead off the pace after a 2-0 victory in their local derby clash with Charlton Athletic. After a goalless first half which saw opportunities at either end, the Lionesses took the lead when Flo Fyfe ran on to former Addicks striker Liz Ejupi's pass to score, with Evie Clarke adding the second goal five minutes later.
Lewes are back up into the top four after coming from behind to win 2-1 at Coventry Utd. The home side, who are still looking for their first win at this level, opened the scoring midway through the first half when Chelsea Weston fired home from 20 yards following a corner. However after the break, any hopes of a Coventry win were dashed by a second half fightback from the Rookettes, with Scotland international striker Zoe Ness to the fore. Ness levelled the scores within three minutes of the restart after exchanging passes with Jess King and with the game heading for a draw, Ness popped up to score her second on the day following good work from Emma Jones.
The five matches in the Championship yielded a total of 22 goals including six at Leicester City, where the home side got off the mark when sharing a 3-3 draw with London Bees. Leicester made a good start to the game with Leigh Dugmore giving them an early lead and Lucy Johnson making it two midway through the first half. The turning point of the match came on the stroke of half time, when Lauren Pickett reduced the arrears for the Bees and Nikita Whinnett equalised five minutes into the second half. The comeback looked have been complete when Pickett scored her second with five minutes to go but Leicester hit back for a share of the spoils when Natalie Johnson headed home from a corner.
Blackburn Rovers' frustrations continued as they went down 3-2 at home to Sheffield Utd, who are starting to gather momentum. Saffron Jordan gave Blackburn a first half lead which was quickly cancelled out by Chloe Dixon, before goals in eight second half minutes from Katie Wilkinson and Jade Pennock saw the Blades home, despite Natasha Flint pulling one back for Rovers in injury time.
