Sunderland strengthened their position at the top of the table with a 3-1 victory over Loughborough Foxes, which as seen them extend their lead to seven points. Neve Herron and Bridget Galloway put the Wearsiders two goals ahead at the interval and Galloway added the third early in the second half, before the Foxes grabbed a consolation through Eva Rogers.

Burnley FC Women had started the day in second but went down to their first defeat of the season, beaten 1-0 by in-form Nottingham Forest who leap above them and into the top three. Precious Hamilton is having a magnificent season for Forest and she made another valuable contribution as she scored the only goal of the game, to hand them their sixth win in seven matches.
Middlesbrough continued their upturn in form as they won 6-3 away to Hull City, a result which has catapulted them back into mid-table. Eleanor Dale and Tyler Dodds each netted twice for 'Boro, with Emma Brown and Emily Scarr also on target, whilst Hull replied through Katie Thompson, Helen Lynskey and an own goal.

Another week, and the top two teams in the table swapped places once again! This time, Watford were not in action and this allowed Crawley Wasps the opportunity to regain the leadership, which they duly accepted with a 3-1 victory over Portsmouth. Emma Plewa netted twice for Crawley and Natasha Stephens was also on target, with Pompey's consolation coming from Jade Widdows.
Plymouth Argyle continue to look strong in third place and kept themselves well in contention by running out 5-0 winners over Chichester City.

Yeovil Town are back in the top four following their 2-1 victory against Milton Keynes Dons on Jamie Sherwood's return to the club as manager.

A late own goal by Katie Jones set up an uncomfortable finish for Yeovil but they held out to make it three league wins in a row.
Keynsham Town maintained their climb away from danger with their second victory in three matches, this time with a 1-0 success away to Oxford Utd. Justine Lorton scored the only goal of the game with sixteen minutes on the clock and a stoic defensive performance, with Charlotte Haynes outstanding in goal, saw them hold on for three valuable points.
